Gentilini Robola R Lees 2015
(13% abv, pH 2.85, TA 6.9 Gg/lt, rs 2.2) A fascinating new effort by Gentilini winery in Cephalonia.Robola is matured for 24 months with the lees acquiring depth of fruit, aromatic complexity and a fatter mid palate. In addition, the wine proves what can Greek whites deliver with extra care in the vineyard and the cellar. Grapes are sourced from a specific vineyard with extremely steep gradient and gravelly soil in the area of Fagias at an altitude of 850 meters. Own rooted, bush vines of 80 years of age producing tiny yields. For 2015, yields did not exceed 25 hl/ha.
Youthful lemon color. Scented with white-green peaches wrapped around a core of creme patisserie and marzipan - like aromas. Impressive freshness, great balance and finesse give the beat to the palate in a wine that ticks all the boxes. An excellent gastronomic wine to accompany complex pork or fish dishes. Produced in 950 bottles and 160 magnums.
