2015 Le Due Terre Sacrisassi Bianco
A blend of 70% Friulano and 30% Ribolla Gialla, this dense and rich white opens with intense aromas of yellow plums, butterscotch and baked apples. Creamy apricot notes follow on the mid palate with spice and vanilla. The texture is silky smooth and refreshing acidity balances the richness. Spicy ginger gently lingers on the finish. This will pair very well with crab and lobster.
`Brilliant intense straw. Savoury, sweet/sour quince nose with the merest suggestion of liquorice. Savoury, white fruit with an almost iodine finish and a long, citric vein running through it. Complex and with a chewy texture. Very long, dry and minerally.` 17.5, Walter Speller, jancisrobinson.com
