2020 Giovanni Armani Giorgio Bianco Superioré
Notes from Carlo and Steve - they make the wines...
77% Vermentino, 13% Malvasia Bianco and 10% Trebbiano. Vermentino from two different sources: Bassham's certified organic site in Barmera, and an un-certified but lovingly tended and idyllic site in the Piccadilly Valley. Malvasia also from Bassham's, and a little Trebbiano from the Hoffmann's in the Barossa. Various levels of skin contact, separate ferments, lees work, all the stuff. Blended. Textural, but definitely more bianco than rancio. Pinging acidity. Malvasia adds a slight tropical fruit element, but balanced by the clean and sharp Vermentino.
