Description

Momento Mori Bianco 2019

Momento Mori Bianco is poised, structured and energetic. It seems light, laser-focused and fresh whilst having a good amount of elegant structure with super vibrant acidity. This bottle of white is a tonic of citrus, green herbs, floral character and soft yet gently chewy-chalky texture. The finish is a long and fruity aftertaste. A surprisingly complex wine that is worthy of contemplation. Every sip glides down with ease, accompanied by refreshing and crisp citrusy notes and clean minerals. A skillfully blended white that is guaranteed to keep you going all night.
This beast is roughly made up of 40% Fiano, 40% Greco di Tufo and 20% co-fermented Fiano and Chardonnay. They were all (except the Fiano/Chard component) fermented separately in stainless steel using various fermentation techniques and all had a decent amount of skin contact, 9 months for the Greco and 1 – 2 months for the others. They all had at least 18 months elevage on full solids and were racked only once to assemble the final blend before bottling.
As claimed by the winemaker himself "this is without a doubt one of my most favorite white (orange of course) wines that I have made to date!"
