Jermann Vintage Tunina 2020
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia|
Brilliant straw yellow in color, with golden reflections. Intense, ample, very elegant and persistent, with scents of honey and country flowers. On the palate it is dry, mellow, well balanced, with extraordinary persistence thanks to the full body.
One of Italy's most lauded whites, this has delicate scents recalling elderflower, citrus and crushed botanical herbs. Made from a field blend of Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia, the rounded, enveloping palate delivers creamy white peach, juicy grapefruit, apple and honeyed notes before a white almond close.

Young peaches and pears are complemented by notes of wet slate and yellow flowers as the 2018 Vintage Tunina unfolds in the glass. It balances savory mineral tension with a pretty inner sweetness, coming across round in feel yet motivated by brisk acidity. Hints of candied lime and green apple linger through the zesty finale, pinching at the cheeks with citrusy concentration. Cellaring might reveal further depths, yet the 2018 is already enjoyable on its zesty fruit-forward character. That said, I don't find the seriousness or aging potential that you would expect here. The Vintage Tunina is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana and Picolit.
Delicate spice and mineral accents wind through this graceful white, which layers flavors of kiwi fruit, lemon meringue pie and grated ginger with a mouthwatering frame of acidity.
