“Sliced-apple and lemon character with some lemon curd, too. It’s medium-bodied, creamy and delicious. Waxy. Some phenolic texture to it. A blend of chardonnay and viognier. Chardonnay aged in barrels and viognier in cement vats. Drink now.” – James Suckling
“Thanks to the cool and rainy growing season, the 2018 Caiarossa Bianco is tonic and light. The 60% Viognier and 40% Chardonnay are fermented and aged on the lees separately in foudres and oak casks and blended at the end, with little or no racking involved in order to make the wine with as little oxygen contact as possible. The result is a precise and clean white that would match up nicely with a delicate and fragrant pesto.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Tasting Note: Rhône meets Tuscany: an elegant blend of Viognier and Chardonnay from this Tuscan estate’s chalkiest terroir. Vinified and matured in old French oak to enhance its complexity. The nose is redolent of stone fruits, with a honeyed, waxy quality and hints of white pepper. The palate shows surprising restraint, with a lean, crisp and utterly refreshing finish. This release will continue to evolve, but it is showing so much aromatic complexity and beautiful structure right now it’s hard to resist. Fully organic and biodynamic.
