Cenatiempo Kalimera Biancolella 2020
On the Italian island of Ischia, Pasquale Cenatiempo crafts wines that taste of volcanic soil and the nearby salty sea. This is 100% Biancolella - Ischia's main white grape - grown in small plots near the old winery. Gentle yellow fruits are wrapped in layers of aromatic herb, crushed stone, and a noticeable tang of the sea.Â Tasting notes don't really do this justice - the excitement goes beyond what you smell and taste to how the wine caresses your palate and then pops with layer upon layer of salty caramel and lip-smacking acidity at the end. Wildly complex and deeply satisfying with incredible freshness, power and finesse.
