Grabbed this bottle at the local store because of happy memories drinking Salina Bianca with incredible meals and incredible company (my now fiancée) on the Aeolian Islands a little over a year ago.
It’s crisp, with a nose of hot rocks and aromatic muscadine, honeysuckle and greengage plums. Palate is rounder than expected, though still dry. A little more acid would be ideal, but with a chill and the right food, this is a happy summertime treat. — 10 days ago
An outstanding Italian white, I just had to taste again. 100% Carricante grown in deep volcanic soil, aged in French oak for 10 months . Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits and honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice, consistent quality. — 6 days ago
The nose has Bruised and older apples, pear, lemon, slight oxidation in a great way. Reminds me of a Joly style wine. Mouth is super lively with high acidity and fresh and stops apples, pear, lemon, slight salinity, crushed rocks, white flowers. Head scratching good wine. — 6 days ago
burst of cherry and fresh summer air on the nose. Slightly tart with a medium finish. Super easy to drink! Pour a big glass. — 24 days ago
Wow. Wonderful wine. Crunchy minerals, invitingly textural, and super sapid acidity with just a hint of electric effervescence. Developing into a multilayered joy machine. Japanese nashi pear & shiro momo joining the flavor festival. Indigenous Carricante grape representing the majority of the blend with Grecanico, aka Garganega of Soave, rounding it out. Delightful juice. — 11 days ago
2017 Le Ragnaie Bianco, 50/50 Trebbiano/Malvasia, a macerated white from Montalcino, not your everyday encounter so to say. Wonderful deep golden hue. Very interesting, complex and playful nose with yellow apples, orange zest, orange candy, honey, white flowers, marzipan and minerals. Fresh backbone on the palate with a tactile sensation on the mid palate that is framme by a good fruit intensity through a solid finish. Perfect interpretation of a creative and playful with the fundamentals within the frame and without going bananas. — 9 days ago
