Ronco del Cerò Collio Sauvignon 2018

A benchmark for the style. ‘Bigger’ richer and more floral
driven than loire, with very nominal grassy notes of loire or NZ. Moderate skin
contact provides richness and body without “orange wine” character. Wine comes
in at 13.5%, high relative to most of loire. But 100% steel – not a Bordeaux blanc
by any stretch. Elegant and flower driven. White flowers dominating along with
ripe melon, stone fruit, some passionfruit and papaya and maybe loquat/Japanese
plum. There is an herbaceous undertone throughout that for me recalls dried
oregano on a hot pizza. Med/med+ acidity. Nice length. Great for rich and mild
tasting seafood like lobster risotto that you want complimented but not overwhelmed.
