2010 Carpineti "Collesante" Lazio Bianco

SKU #1086570

From one of the most significant and famous estates of Lazio, only 45 minutes outside of Rome, comes this absolutely delicous white wine made from a local, nearly extinct grape called Arciprete (in turn a clone of an almost equally obscure grape called Bellone). Very aromatic, remeniscent of a well made Malvasia, with pretty peach, apricot blossom and a hint of wild fennel in the nose, and a rich, zesty mouthfeel. The estate is actually a large organic farm, where they make olive oil, cheese and other foodstuffs in addition to the wine, but Marco Carpineti considers the later the jewel of his crown.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
