This is a brand new wine from a well-known winery and in a bottle shape many of you will recognize from their rosé fizz. This, however, is still. Pale orange-peach hue and pretty much dry, with orange, pear butter, raspberry and a fine riff of spice on the medium-bodied (13 degrees) palate. Groppello, Barbera, Sangiovese and Marzemino from Lake Garda are partially crushed and partially macerated, with the each part fermented and aged separately in stainless for a few months on lees before the final blend. Though shorter on the finish, this is quite an elegant show and a welcome mature move from this classic Italian.
