2018 Fattori Al Fiore Bucci
Yama-sauvignon and neo-muscat in this wine.
Yama-sauvignon is a hybrid variety that blends Japan ‘wild’ grape variety yama budou with cabernet sauvignon. Neo-muscat is also a hybrid variety. It’s like The Matrix, but wine. Or something like that. No additions, organic grown. Crunchy, pomegranate juice. Cranberry too. Licks of kombu and salty minerality. Very pure feeling. Light and delicate. Almost fragile in texture, clear and resonant fruitiness with brisk acidity. Some rogue garrigue and brambly notes, faint ferrous character. So interesting, perhaps not particularly complex, but you seek out the fine detail. Gosh I like drinking this. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
