93 pts – “Peach, apricot and minerals on the deep, complex nose. Then rich, dense and tactile, with flavors similar to the aromas on the long, ripe, stony finish. Another smashingly good Coda di Volpe wine by La Rivolta, an estate that has a real knack for this variety and a long history of making outstanding wines with it.”
– Ian d’Agata (Vinous)
This is an excellent expression of Chenin Blanc which, in particular, displays an exceptionally high quality of fruit and the organic production ensures that the terroir comes across in the aromas and flavors of this wine. The delicious, ripe, tropical fruit of melon, golden delicious apples, apricots and pineapple reflect the excellent warm growing season. Meanwhile, the mineral character brings about an exciting complexity.
Arinto, Fernão Pires & Moscatel.
From Casa Santos Lima comes this incredibly aromatic white highlighting citric notes, and which the palate shows once again. It is a vivid wine revealing freshness and a very good acidity.
Captivating nose melds fresh herbs and cut grass with fresh peach and hints of honey and spice. Supple, rich and fresh - showing the strength of the vintage - offering a lovely touch of sweetness and just enough acidity to its flavours of peach, lemon, flowers and stone.
Bright yellow colour with golden hues. Expressive nose of flowers and exotic fruits. Fleshy and balanced on the palate, it complements the harmonious impression of freshness. Serve very cool (8-10ºC) with fish, shellfish or as an aperitif.
From Lodi, California
Expertly crafted and aged for 6 months in French Oak barrels. Full-bodied and deliciously dry, it features exquisite richness and pronounced ripe tropical fruit notes. It has a smooth, creamy body and a long, citrus finish. Excellent with fish, mussels and clams, and with soft cheese.
Tremendous depth of fruit married perfectly with mineral aromas. The palate is complex and impressive, mixing zesty fruit, tropical nuances and a ripe fruit core, plus some smokiness, striking minerality and a fine balance to finish.
Fresh and vibrant in the glass, it impresses for its energy and elegance. Bright lemon, grapefruit, white flower and crushed rock notes race across the palate. At the same time, there is plenty of texture and richness. This terrific wine will delight Chablis fans for a fraction of the price.
