Gagliole - Biancolo 2017
Gagliole - Biancolo 2017 (88 TSW)
Blend of 50% Trebbiano and 50% Chardonnay.
This blend from Tuscany with equal parts Trebbiano and Chardonnay was spot on with the good weather in the Netherlands.?????? The vineyards of this white one are situated at an altitude of 450 to 480 meters with one south and south-west orientation. The body is loam with the porous and pulverized Tuscan rock (Galestro). 5000 sticks per hectares.
The best juice of the two grapes, hand matted in small boxes, harvested and soft beaded. Vinified on 100% French oak, of course with the regularly stirring up the fine yeast spores and meeting a long time with the residue.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a golden yellow color with greenish reflections.
On the medium+ nose aromas of lemon, apple and nectarine with hints of white blossom, spices and mint.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied with great freshness and acidity which makes you long fort he next sip. Nice fresh light creamy mouthfeel with the same flavours which you can find on the nose. The finish shows frutiness and a slight bitterness. Top Tuscan white!
Will be great with seafood, pasta or just for sipping on the terrace.
