Tappero Merlo Acini Perduti 2020

Tappero Merlo Acini Perduti 2020

Acini Perduti is a mineral driven white wine with exotic notes that can be paired with a large variety of foods.  At refrigerator temperature, the wine smells like Erbaluce, albeit a lighter one than KIN. That is, like apples - almost like a Chardonnay.  Time in the glass sees a little more aromatic articulacy emerge.  The Malvasia Moscata comes out as the wine warms, with green grapes, honeydew and lychee notes.  Aromas redolent of a Gewurzraminer.  The wine is soft and broad on the palate, with lower acidity.  A bright mineral note extends the finish.
