Tenuta di Castellaro Bianco Porticello 2017
|Brand||Tenuta di Castellaro|
Wine AdvocateHere's a new, food-friendly wine from one of my favorite under-the-radar estates in Sicily (actually, it is located on the satellite island of Lipari, to be exact). The 2017 Bianco Porticello is beautifully fragrant and pure. The wine's floral aromas jump from the glass, giving this wine a cheerful and buoyant personality. If you are a lover of crisp and tonic Italian whites, I absolutely recommend this excellent value wine. I just love it. The blend is 60% Carricante (aged in oak for extra structure and texture) and 40% Moscato (that rests in stainless steel to preserve its aromas). Some 20,000 bottles were made.
