Italian White Wines

Droppello Sangiovese Bianco 2020

On the nose, pronounced notes of cedar, vanilla, some banana and pineapple, and subtle yeasty notes. On the palate it shows soft, round texture, with interesting interplay of pleasant acidity and fresh fruit. The wine rests for 12 months sur lie and then maturesfor a further 6 months in new oak. Sensational! A jewel of a wine.
