Decugnano dei Barbi "Mare Antico" 2016 Orvieto Classico

Description

"Aromas of stone fruit and field flower lift out of the glass. Round and creamy, the fresh palate offers juicy white peach, Rennet apple and lemon zest flavors. A salty mineral note closes the finish." Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

"Packaged in an elegant and fancy bottle, the 2016 Orvieto Classico Superiore Mare Antico (made only in stainless steel) aspires to be more than the standard, easy-drinking white made in this high-volume Umbrian appellation. The wine is a blend of 55% Grechetto, 20% Vermentino, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Procanico. To my palate, the grassy or tropical fruit aromas I associate with Vermentino are the most evident. Mare Antico is the new name of the wine that was once called Decugnano dei Barbi il Bianco. The new name translates as "ancient sea" and refers to the marine fossils found in the sandy soils of the vineyard. Some 20,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker 89 Points
