Tasting Notes

A combination of some of my favourite grape varietals - Grechetto, Chardonnay and Trebbiano. Floral and fruity, yet balanced with a lingering minerality is what these grapes bring to the mix.

 

I really like this wine as the nose is a bouquet of white flowers and lavender. The winery describes the palate as the body being full, with apples and plums and I tend to agree. There is a minerality and a lemony citrus character to round out the palate.

  

Enjoy Me With

This wine demands food; it's full, it's rich, it's floral and excuse the pun, but it's quite the mouthful. Grilled seafoods on the lighter end of the flavour spectrum, through to heavier fish stews or curries. 

 

Overall delicious, but it really does need food to get the full enjoyment from this wine. If you really like floral whites that are quite textural and full bodied, then this is a wine you will really enjoy.

- Jeremy.

 

Vineyard in Focus

The Adanti winery is located in the Montefalco Sagrantino Secco DOCG appellation, in the region of Umbria, Central Italy. Their main wine is made from 100% Sagrantino grapes and has a unique regulation of aging, which stipulates that the Sagrantino must age for a minimum of 37 months, of which at least 12 months must be in oak barrels. The Sagrantino has extremely thick skins and being combined with a long ageing process creates a big dense bold wine. The vineyard also grows Grechetto, Trebbiano, Barbera, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot and a few others too. Adanti is seen as being advanced for the region, ensuring the winery is equipped with the latest technology and using modern wine making techniques.
