2014 Rubattorno Winery Bianco di Toscana
Region: Chianti Montalbano, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
First time trying Tuscan Trebbiano, we did not know what to expect. Chilled the wine for a little bit and decanted for 30 minutes prior to tasting. Wine was bright and clear straw yellow, almost like a straw wine. The nose started off tight with some nutty notes like roasted almonds and some earthy notes of wet stones. As it opened up the nose continued to become more complex with some intense floral notes of hydrangeas and white flowers. Then the nose tapered off with hints of honeysuckle and lime. Very balanced body that is matched with a solid balance between sweetness and moderate acidity. Moderate plus body with hints of tangerine and acidity throughout. Slight minerality in the moderate finish. This is one of our favorite white wines to date. Can easily last another few years for further enjoyment. On a side note this is not a white wine for people who like light whites. The complexity and body are definitely for those who enjoy red wines or heavier whites.
