Perhaps the more focused wine from Raina which is a family natural winery that doesn't forget the tradition. Only little sulphites used in the whole process(just before bottling), nothing else added.
6 days maceration, indigenous yeast and 6 months on the lees in stainless steel.
Result is orangy with vivid mineral that leads the sip. It doesn't tire your palate, it's a little less than intriguing because goes down too quickly.
It's long too
Excellent price point is a plus
I reckon this is a very good effort
A little bottle age would help too i guess — a month ago
Marchesi Antinori ‘San Giovanni della Sala’ Orvieto Classico Superiore 2018: Medium-light bodied. Medium intense aromas. Lively acidity with a clean, fresh & fruity taste. Citrus, pear, white peach & subtle minerals on the palate. Long balanced finish. All in all, this was an excellent Grechetto white blend from the Umbria region of Italy and another Antinori winner with great QPR. Go find yourself a bottle & enjoy. You won’t regret it! Great day to all! Cheers🍷 — 10 days ago
Comparing two 2010 Sagrantino di Montefalcos. Both opened for an hour first. I thought the Adanti was a bit softer and more aromatic at first. But the Perticaia had more structure, depth and complexity. Decanted the Perticaia for dinner (only have 1 decanter) and it improved even more. — 6 days ago
A deep Amarillo/ pale green hue, fresh hay & flowers, unripe mango on nose. Textured & unctuous on palate, with more fresh florals & pale fruits on palate. This is an exciting wine from an exciting importer, at an exciting price- under 14$. Umbrian good, via Jan D’Amore. — 22 days ago

In the past I thought the Adanti had quite a tannic punch. That has faded over the 3 years since I last opened one. — 6 days ago
