Casale del Giglio Bellone 2018

Lazio, ItalyA grape variety cited by Pliny the Elder and present in the region since Roman times, bellone here grows in the warm sandy soils of coastal Anzio, cooled by the sea breezes. After a short stint on skins, this was native fermented in stainless, where it rested briefly before bottling. Green apple, pine nut, tangerine pith rings on the slight, bright palate, finishing with a wash of sea salts. A lovely white to take with shellfish or lighter pastas.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 private wine shops QC 24.70 SAQ Producer: Casale del GiglioDistributors: World Wine Synergy Inc.
