Montevretano Core Bianco (IGT) 2019 (Italy: Campania) (ID# 3832)

Name Montevretano Core Bianco (IGT) 2019 (ID# 3832)
Varietal Fiano de Avellino & Greco di Tufo
Region Italy: Campania
Notes "The Montevetrano 2019 Core Bianco is a blend of equal parts Fiano and Greco. This happy marriage of Campania indigenous grapes results in silky creaminess and a smooth textural approach that gives this wine a leg up on many other local whites you may know. The bouquet offers an assembly of peach, citrus and melon, and the finish is clean and nicely streamlined. This is a handy, easy-drinking white for grilled or baked fish." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Papaya, pear, lemon-curd and some white-pepper notes here. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a gently oily texture and crisp acidity. Zesty finish." (James Suckling) "The 2019 Bianco Core, an equal-parts blend of Fiano and Greco, shows sweet white flowers with peach skins and hints of raw almond. It’s soft, almost weighty in feel with a pleasant inner sweetness, yet nicely balanced by a mix of bright acids and sour citrus. This leaves tart orchard fruits, nuances of lime and salty minerals to linger incredibly long. As enjoyable as the 2020 Core is today, another year of cellaring will unlock further depths."
