Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Fontodi claims that the ’18 Meriggio Bianco is the most complex and freshest that it’s ever seen, and we have to agree--this wine is fascinating! Juicy yet finessed, ripe yet steely, intense yet focused, the ’18 Meriggio has a lot to give white wine lovers, layering its succulent stone and crisp orchard fruits with crushed river rocks, fresh herbs, white wildflowers and a dusting of peppery spices. Weighty yet nimble, this wine whooshes across the palate, propelled by its twin engines of savory minerality and keen acidity, as it builds to a resonant, complex and refreshing finish. Enjoyable upon release, this sophisticated white will drink beautifully over the medium term. Deriving from Fontodi’s organically tended, north-facing La Rota vineyard, this wine is mostly old-vine Sauvignon Blanc blended with about 10% Trebbiano; grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages on the lees for six months, mostly in stainless steel, with a small percentage in amphora. Only 300 cases will be imported to the USA.
