Gentilini Robola R Lees 2015

(92+)

(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.
