Look at this golden/amber color!
Coste di Riavolo
(Blend of Gewurz & Riesling!)
On nose seems very much like dessert wine with dried apricots, candied citrus and flowers and a bit of funky rubber but on the palate it is extremely dry with a lot of power (slightly too much for me 14.5%! Alc). Beautifully fresh with super long finish with spices, apricots, almonds and candied ginger.
Very interesting white! — a year ago
Medium intensity on the nose. Coming from this sub-appellation should be more elegant but I found it to be quite rich but still quaffable! Hints of sweet tobacco, marjoram, blossoms lead way to ripe red fruits like cherries and plums. I could detect the oak from vanilla and cedar flavors which did not make me fall in love with this wine. Nice mouthfeel but a but hot on the finish. #valtellina #chiavennasca #nebbiolo #italianredwine — 2 years ago
