Prima Viola 2019
Aged for 7 months in concrete tanks and barriques and 12 months in the bottle
Unique among the Tuscan coast’s whites: charming and balanced, nonchalant but refined. Fresh with a savory and mineral sip.
“Incredibly terse and enveloping. It flaunts a sensory profile that is both spicy and spiced: jasmine, acacia, mandarine, freshly cut grass, white pepper, and walnut hull. The background is rife with fatty stuff thanks to a correctly executed fermentation on fine lees and unravels a further aromatic richness with green tea leaves and dried chamomile. A medium-full body, with an unwound and juicy sip, which it wraps up with precision and vibrance. A blend of Chardonnay and Viognier. Delicious right off the bat. Drink now.”
“Cooked-apple and lemon character with a stony note. It’s full-bodied and layered with lots of fruit and intensity. Chardonnay and viognier. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.”
