2019 Sete Tropicale
Ottonese, trebbiano and malvasia from Lazio, via old, resurrected vineyards and a couple of younger gen winemakers interested in the preservation of old vines and varieties of their pocket of the region, Latina.
There is 24 hours skin contact here. Organic, no additions. Lemon verbena and ginger whiffs, earthy notes, ashy whiffs and a load of wet herbs. Lemony-ginger tang to taste, tonic water licks, finishes nutty-savoury and dry-dusty with splash of lemon mineral water lingering. Nice juiciness overall, takes a bit of time to shake off its rustic charm start, but opens up nicely, while retaining its wilder edge. Delicious after 30 mins. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
