Vitiano Bianco Umbria 2015
Ah, yeah...it’s really important that you do whatever you need to do (unless you are skydiving or something) to PLEASE grab this all-time Italian CLASSIC at what can only be described as a Bruce Lee/Chuck Norris/Sigourney-Weaver-in-the-original-Aliens-movie level deal. We are….nearly….speechless today.
Oh man, the force is strong in the one. The price is stronger, though. Wow. So --- let us dust ourselves off and ‘splain you the awesomeness of this deal. Probably a lot of you know Vitiano. They came on the Italian wine scene in 1995 as an offshoot of the famous Falesco winery, which you probably also know, and immediately started getting huge scores and were hailed as a fantastic value, best-ever-deal kind of producer. And that remains the same. So when we tasted this and worked a jaw-on-the-floor deal, well, we’re just skipping around the warehouse like 3 year olds.
This wine is a crisp, serious, complex mouthful of deliciousness. More complex than say, most Sauvignon Blanc (it is 50% each Verdicchio and Vermentino), but retaining zippy freshness and length. The nose and flavors are terrific --- lemon preserves, ginger, citrus, walnuts and roasted nuts, mineral and fresh --- light on the palate but oh-so complex. A truly exciting and refreshing change from the norm. AND THE PRICE?? Are we crazy? What a score!!
