Ischia Bianco 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Bianco, an equal-parts blend of Biancolella and Forastera, opens slowly in the glass, as crushed stone gives way to a flinty mix of dusty dried flowers, incense and pear nectar. It fills the palate with rich, glycerol-like textures, as notes of candied lime and ripe apple give way to honeyed inner florals. Residual acids keep the experience lively and fresh through the finale, as hints of tropical citrus and minerals linger. I’m craving a little more energy on the palate; however, this is a gorgeous, if slightly decadent, Ischia Bianco. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2022)

Villa Campagnano Epomeo Bianco Biancolella Forastera Blend

We had this as part of a seafood degustation during our stay in Sorrento. Minerally but also aromatic and paired perfectly with the octopus dish we had. Hoping to find a bottle to bring back to Australia! — 4 years ago

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos White Blend 2019

A blend of Listán Blanco (Palomino) and several other native varieties - Malvasía, Forastera, Marmajuelo, Albillo Criollo, Vijariego Blanco and Gual – from various parcels in the village of Taganana in the north of Tenerife, each plot vinified separately. Fermented in concrete open vats (with short skin-macerations) and partially aged in steel (40%) and 228 and 600-liter oak barrels (60%) for about 8 months. Sea breeze, bitter orange and lightly oxidized notes on the nose. Complex, mineral, precise. Nice saltiness, long finish — 2 years ago

Táganan Parcela Amogoje Malvasia Blend 2014

Single parcel field blend of very old own-rooted vines, on volcanic rock overlooking the Atlantic. Bruised pear skin, smoky volcanic ash, briny, wild herbs. One of 600ish bottles produced. All I need now is a few dozen oysters and some uni nigiri! — 6 years ago

Islas Canarias Blanca 2018

Från kanarieön La Gomera. Oympade stockar i vulkanisk jordmån på 1050 meter höjd. Mycket ren och frisk med en härlig oljig textur. Snärtig avvägd frukt med undertoner av fänkål och salvia. — 3 years ago
