Masciarelli Villa Gemma Bianco 2015
|Region||Italy, Abruzzo, Colline Teatine|
Ranked the #3 White, Sparkling & Rose Wine in our February 9, 2019 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
Color: Pale straw yellow. Bouquet: Fairly intense. Taste: Floral, great flavor and minerality. Food Pairing: Raw fish appetizers, seafood, Mediterranean fish.
Pale straw. Herbal and lemony aromas and flavors are clean and crisp. Juicy and on the lean side, but with bright saline acidity that gives the wine a fine-grained texture. Finishes bright and floral but a little simple.
This well-knit white is light- to medium-bodied and fresh, with a sense of finesse to the layering of bright acidity, chalk-tinged minerality and subtle flavors of green melon, apple blossom and slivered almond. Creamy. Trebbiano, Cococciola and Chardonnay. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases imported.
