High acidity in the bouquet. Lemon, lime. The smell of roses burned.
I don’t usually enjoy Chianti, but I must admit I haven’t really give it a fair shot either. A few bad impressions have left me gravitating towards the northern Piedmont region.
The acidity and tartness work here. Listening to Cajun folk pop music, reading a book by candlelight, and staying in from the eminent winter storm outside, this wine promises to keep me warm, surprised, and as leafy jovial as a Spring day in Central Park.
This is a juicy treat of a wine — one that makes me astonished how the Earth can sprout something so jammy and full of life from its soil and soul.

Funky bunch bordering on sulfur dissipated to well water, then to a buttery jasmine with notes of grapefruit zest and desert nettle. Ripe, gelatinous citrus lineup of grapefruit, lime, lemon, persimmon and yeast-wheat bread with a dry, gingery,substantial finish. #Giorgi #bubbles #topzero #GiorgiTopZero #sparklingwine #OltrepoPavese #italianwines #Italian #wine #northernitalianwines — a year ago
