Panizzi - Evoè bianco IGT 2016
Panizzi - Evoè bianco IGT 2016 (89 TSW)
Today the most experimental wine of the Panizzi winery in the glass. Winelovers who like to to try experimental wines and search for boundaries will love this one.
"Euoè / Evoè" is the greeting exclamation of the Bacchantes in honour of Dionysus, god of wine.
A wine produced from very mature Vernaccia grapes, with a long maceration on the skins, oak aging and plenty of time in bottle: a search for the expressive boundaries of this historic grape varietal.
Processed in a conical oak vat; fermentation and long maceration on the skins without the use of selected yeasts. Refined and matured for 10 months in the same tanneau container on its lees. Unfiltered.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a medium(+) intense golden color with amber reflections.
On the medium(+) nose aromas of orange peel, citrus zest and honey with hints of herbs, flowers, mirabelle, light cedar and vanilla.
On the palate dry, medium(+) bodied with medium acidity. Good structure and balance with concentrated flavours of orange peel, cedar, citrus and light butter tones. Very rich in taste but also easy to drink.
