Bastianich Vespa Bianco 2011

Bastianich Vespa Bianco 750ml 2011     STIANICH VESP 
Sku: 11237

The flagship wine of the Bastianich estate, Vespa Bianco was created to showcase the power and evolution that a great Friulian white can have. Consisting of equal parts Sauvignon and Chardonnay with a measure of Picolit, Vespa becomes more than a sum of its parts, a wine of uncommon complexity and longevity.

Tasting notes
A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. The palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it no only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.

Rating
 Beer Advocate STIANICH VESP points
The 2011 Vespa Bianco is a beautiful blend of equal parts Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with a small component of Picolit. This is a richly textured and opulent white (half is aged in stainless steel and half in Slavonian oak casks for one year) that delivers apricot, honey and a touch of caramel. It reaches profound levels of depth and harmony. Drink: 2014-2019.

Food pairing
Roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas.
