Bianco Lazio IGT 2015

A traditionally made blend of Grechetto and Viognier, this wine displays a deft balance between soft fruit and slightly saline acidity. Volcanic soils lend an elegant minerality to complement the white peach, medlar, and fresh almond on the palate. Moderate skin contact and aging on the lees deliver body, golden color, and enticing texture. The color is a clear, golden-yellow, the result of sitting on the lees. The aromas are surprisingly complex, mineral, intense yet elegant, with a pleasing fruit component that is not too ripe. There is white peach, medlar and perhaps some fresh almond, along with flint and gentian flower. The flavor is balanced, soft, piquant and perfectly upheld by a brackish, Mediterranean acidity.
