Sardinia, Italy

Cardedu

Bucce Bianco 2019

This wine is deep gold with notable haze and visible lees, due to lack of fining / filtration, which gives this wine great texture and weight.

The extended skin contact contributes not only the color and texture, but the aromatic notes of ripe cantaloupe, honeydew, orange peel, grapefruit pith, also dried orange blossom, freshly cut herbs, wet slate, tomato leaf, and salinity.

Vintage 2019. ABV 13%.

Excited for this delish and versatile, food-friendly wine.

Easily one of the great wines of Italy. Like a cross between Jerez and Chateau Chalon. 18%. Nose has orange/chocolate liqueur, exotic spices, pound cake, minor ethanol (hello 18%), white raspberry, white chocolate, bittersweet cocoa and more. Enormously complex and wafting aromas. Could be a bit colder but always a challenge finding the right temperature to serve these at. Palate is juicy and invigorating with such finesse and a fruit skin complexity. Very concentrated but man what finesse here and just the silkiest texture. Long. Super long. Nose starts to develop sawdust, tree bark and orange rind. The elegance stands out so much and how nimble and light on its feet it is. Always spectacular, delicious and distinctive. Brilliant. Nose develops a honey/sweet truffle thing now with sweet saddle leather as well. Marmalade. — 6 days ago

@Eric italian desert cakes like Zuccotto or Pannetone I’d match with it. For me too powerful on its own.

Nose is like Verdicchio. Lime zest, lime flower and maybe some discreet wood. Floral and saline. High toned and very bright and lifted. Super pure. Some white coconut shavings. Really interesting. Rich, racy and very very Verdicchio like on the palate. Great purity and cleanliness. Lacking a bit of density. Good length. Flavors are lime zest, sweet lemon and minerals. Quite elegant as well. Let’s see what air does. — 8 days ago

It reminded me of my Old Vine #Garnacha from Calatayud. Spicy semi carbonic maceration fresh and juicy. — 7 days ago

Vigna'ngena Vermentino Di Gallura 2017

Quite unlike a Ligurian Vermentino, this Capichera Vign’Angena from Sardegna is rich with tropical fruits, peach and honey with a golden colour and long aftertaste! — 5 days ago
