2014 Fontodi Meriggio Colli Toscana Centrale IGT, Tuscany image

The 2014 Meriggio is a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the heart of the Chianti Classico wine appellation. First made in 1984, Meriggio had other white grapes in the blend such as Pinot Bianco and Traminer. With time, the wine evolved into mono-variety expression with whole cluster pressing followed by partial oak fermentation for extra creaminess. The wine sees lees contact in steel tanks and the general winemaking philosophy calls for as little contact with oxygen as possible. This vintage shows higher freshness and acidity, and a bouquet that is beautifully redolent of white flower and passion fruit. ...90 pts WA ..ML
