Bastianich Vespa Bianco 2016
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Colli Orientali del Friuli|
The flagship wine of the Bastianich estate, Vespa Bianco was created to showcase the power and evolution that a great Friulian white can have. Consisting of equal parts Sauvignon and Chardonnay with a measure of Picolit, Vespa becomes more than a sum of its parts, a wine of uncommon complexity and longevity. Layers of fruit supported by a lovely vein of minerality which gives the wine notable continuity on the palate as well as a long, clean finish... Clearly has the stuffing to develop further complexity in bottle.
"This is one of the best Vespas I have had in a long time. Medium-to full-bodied, linear and racy. Gorgeous and flavorful finish. Spice and almond undertones. Complex wine. Blend of chardonnay, sauvignon and picolit."
A round and creamy, medium-bodied white backed by a fresh spine of acidity, this is balanced and well-meshed, offering a subtle array of yellow pear, slivered almond and elderflower flavors and a minerally tang of saline that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
