2015 Pietranera Pantelleria Bianco (87 pts) #winereview - This wine jumps out of the glass with floral aromas of acacia and rose. Quickly followed by tropical fruit lychee and watermelon rind. Also the telltale musky aromas of Zibibbo (aka Muscat of Alexandria). The palate is bone dry with medium acidity. The palate is not as expressive as the nose, but there is a strong minerality to the wine that you don't get out of a lot of Muscats (Yay Volcanic soil!). The finish is moderate length. This is a pleasure to drink but really needs to be at the perfect temp as too cold and it's less expressive and too warm it comes across a bit flabby. #wineterroir #wine #terroir #winereview #winelover #winegeek #winetasting
