2018 Fattoria Al Fiore Hana
Steuben! Sees carbonic maceration and direct press of the grapes, aged in amphora for a short time.
Organic farmed, no additions. A hybrid variety made in New York state but found in Japan – the parent varieties were Wayne and Sheridan! Ha. How good are those grape names?! Kath and Kim’s neighbours. Maraschino cherry! Pops out of the glass. Lurid colour too. Glossy, glassy texture, crisp and crunchy, sour cherry and pepper and fennel to taste. Salty minerality. So fine and frisky, finest tannin web too. So refreshing, almost health tonic-like. This is such an epic and delicious thing to drink. Ludicrous! Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
