2013 Bianchello del Matauro DOC, Crespaia - Azienda Agricola Prelato

2013 Bianchello del Matauro DOC, Crespaia - Azienda Agricola Prelato
ref. PREL130 JUN17

Wine Variety: Is this or is this not the same variety as Trebbiano Toscano? The jury's still out on the subject, yet these two varieties have separate listings in Italy's national registry of grape varieties so, for the time being at least, we can consider them as individuals. However ripe the fruit becomes, it always remains green in colour...unlike many Trebbianos.

Wine Region: The Marche is a region in central eastern Italy where coastal plains rise inland into the Apennine spine of the country. The Marche has been slow to realise its potential for the production of quality wines, yet in Verdicchio it has one of Italy's finest white grapes. Reds are largely from Montepulciano. 

Wine Producer: Crespaia was established in 2011 in the province of Pesaro e Urbino in the Marche, central Italy. They work their vineyards organically and prioritise ecological matters, even down to the lightness of the glass in their bottles (410g, in case you're wondering).

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

Initially tasted at 8 degrees C. N.B. This has been open in the fridge 24 hours under screw cap.

Pale, pronounced lemon gold. Aromas are nice and fully ripe, of spiced yellow apples showing good density. This is a good temperature for this wine as it is assertively characterful. Rich and dense in the mouth, it shows a core of texture that reminds me of fine mud. And the fruit is rich and really tasty: those yellow apples return. After a while there’s something rather scented about the flavours. It’s a long thing and picks up mineral freshness at the back end. Nice lift at the death. Nice wine altogether. I am interested! Almost something slightly liquorice here.
