Salcheto - Obvius, Bianco di Toscana, Italy (2020)
Funky and fun on the nose, with aromas of ripe pear, dark honey, bramble and earth, all backed by some savoury elements along with Meyer lemon and beeswax on the palate. A yeasty character and some of the savoury “funk” from the nose comes through on the palate.
Hand-harvested Trebbiano Toscana and Vermentino grapes from multiple vineyards are brought into the winery cool, so that they can be pressed with the utmost care. The juice undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. There are no additions, subtractions or manipulations here, the wine is literally “just the grapes”. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 3 months, 70% in stainless steel, 30% in large neutral oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
