Mirco Mariotti Argo 2020

Mirco Mariotti makes natural wines in the Bosco Eliceo area in the eastern part of Emilia-Romagna. The vines grow 300 meters from the Adriatic sea and many are well over 100 years old. They are gnarly non-grafted vines with roots that dig as deep as two meters in the sandy soil and into the aquifer below. Mariotti’s wines are named after local card games the locals play. This is entirely organic Grechetto gentile (aka pignoletto), with time on skins. Gentle orange blossoms, almond blossom, pine nuts, hay is etched with the gripping skin contact, finishing with a warming flush at 14%. An easy textural option for a richer oily white fish or fresh veg risotto.Tasted: 24 June 2021Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Mirco MariottiDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
