A blend of 70% Malvasia, 20% Grechetto and 10% Trebbiano, this lovely Bianco di Martiena was aged in stainless steel tank for six months and is Dei's smallest production wine, with very little of it ever leaving Italy. Thus, we were thrilled to be able to procure some just for our club! The nose offers fresh scents of lemon, pear and yellow plum with gentle, underlying aromas of wild flowers. Flavors on the medium-bodied palate echo the bouquet and are joined by green apple and even a little tropical hint of pineapple. It ends on a refreshing note with honey, white almond and slightly overripe Braeburn apple. Overall, the wine has a nice weight that delivers a pleasant, palate-coating texture which is not at all cloying yet lingers in an appealing way thanks to the cleansing acidity of the crisp finish.
