100% Ansonica, from the Island of Giglio - just off the Tuscan coast. “Testamatta 2021 is a pure expression of the Ansonica on Giglio Island.

Brancaia Il Bianco (Sauvignon Blanc) 2022

SG$35.00
SG$35.00

WINERY NOTE: White wines usually play a minor role in Tuscany. We are all the more proud of our Il Bianco, which gets even better with each year. We harvest the grapes for this wine, 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Radda, only in the early morning hours so that they arrive nice and cool in the cellar. There we let them ferment spontaneously after twelve hours of contact with the mash at 16 degrees. By preventing the malolactic fermentation, we get a wonderfully fresh wine, which thanks to the five-month aging on the yeast (⅓ in barriques, ⅔ in steel tanks) has an excellent structure. Gooseberry and grapefruit aromas at the beginning and floral...

Wine Advocate 93 points. This wine opens to passion fruit and green papaya, followed by sharper tones of dried ginger and a dusting of powdered licorice root. The Cantina Kaltern 2019 Alto Adige Sauvignon Quintessenz offers a richer and more elongated texture compared to your classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc, yet its aromas remain intact, zippy and fresh. There is a hint of extra ripeness to those flavors that underlines the more tropical or exotic side of the grape in this release of 12,000 bottles. ML Sep 2021.

An ancient grape variety, historically indigenous to the Tortonese hills, Timorasso, now brought back to life by taking the name Derthona. Timorasso  is one of those wines that could be described as a “red dressed as white”, an overabused expression used to describe white wines with a particular and abundant structure. The area where the vine is cultivated in Piemonte borders Lombardy, Emilia and Liguria: the  Colli Tortonesi . Timorasso, which was on the verge of disappearing in the late 1980s, was rediscovered in the early 1990s by Walter Massa. And so the district started working again with this powerful yet elegant...
