Feudo Maccari 'Family and Friends'

Grillo, 2016

Italy White

Noto, Sicily 75cl

This is made from 'only the best grapes' as it says on the label. Mature vines, low yielding fermented and aged in concrete eggs and new French oak barriques.
It's a touch oaky at present, but I am sure this will settle down and integrate more.
Floral, grape and peach characters with other citrus fruits, vanilla and hints of cinnamon.
Peach and citrus on the palate, a hint of pink grapefruit and toasty, nutty oak. with a toasted almond finish. Has a lovely freshness and really good acidity, and I think in 3-6 months this will be really interesting, though I think the oak could be toned down a touch. I look forward to trying again.
