“L’ESPRIT Vigneto di Popoli”, Valle Reale (2014) - Abruzzo
Grape : Trebbiano.
A rare gem, a wine that resemble of some Jura wines, slightly oxidative notes, mineral citrusy with notes of the Artemisia flowers which are everywhere around the vines and the winery. All about wild indigenous yeasts and their influence on the wine flavours, uncontaminated vines in the National Park of Abruzzo, cru Capestrana, surrounded and protected by forests and olives tree and a last -but not least- surprisingly graceful expression of Trebbiano. Complex.
Food Pairing : Arrosticini, grilled fish, sole munier, rich cheeses and any dishes cooked in cream and cheese sauce.
