Tenuta di Castellaro Bianco Pomice

Bianco Pomice is a blend of 60% Malvasia di Lipari and 40% Carricante. Only the Carricante is aged in neutral oak for six months with lees contact and frequent stirring. Bright straw-yellow. Tight aromas of white peach, lemon, minerals and fresh herbs. Delivers good density without being weighty, showing bright lemony cut to the apricot, papaya and saline mineral flavors. Displays lovely mineral-acid balance, finishing with enticing, lingering perfume and noteworthy complexity.

"The 2017 Bianco Pomice is a delightful white wine with an extremely graceful and fast-footed bouquet. You get lots of little detail here with white fruit, citrus, crushed stone and powdered oyster shell. The wine is streamlined and tight in terms of mouthfeel with a direct, sharp and beautifully focused approach. Salty mineral tones characterize the tonic and fresh finish. I just love this crisp and light style of white wine. The blend is 60% Malvasia delle Lipari (in stainless steel) and 40% oak-aged Carricante. Some 15,000 bottles were made." 92 Points - Wine Advocate

"If you are not familiar with these wines, I strongly recommend you seek them out." Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Intensely stony citrus entwined with a richer and lightly floral, stone-fruit aroma from the Malvasia. Creamy texture from the oak and lees but not in the least oaky, the breadth in the mouth also from the Malvasia, I think. This has fabulous depth and density and yet remains so fresh and refreshing with a long, stony but also crisply citrus finish, even a hint of orange pith on the finish and the merest suggestion of grainy texture like fresh pears." 17.5/20 (Great rating!) - Jancis Robinson
