Forti del Vento An Piota 2018

Piedmont, ItalyPouring a walnut tone, this is a natural chardonnay, aged in amfora, with 90 days on the skins. Opening with a splash of apricot oil and wave of bergamot, before a slender palate of apple peel, kumquat, apricot pith, rinsed with tea astringency, and a pierce of ethyl acetate. Great grippy texture holding this taut, with nervy, stencilled acidity. Very interesting project; will watch in future.Tasted: 20 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 34.95 consignment Producer: Forti del VentoDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
