Valentina Passalacqua Calcarius Bombigiana 2018

Ratings

7.50 / 10750 ml

Pleasant and light orange wine. 4 days of maceration. Apricot, dried fruits and flowers, honey, bubblegum, mango. Subtle hints of VA (if you dislike it, decant for 20-30 minutes). Bright tannins (though not in Georgian style), long bitter aftertaste with flavours of apricot and VA. Would drink it again with pleasure, but for lower price.

I rarely say it, but label is fantastic. I am not into chemistry, but the joke around winery name is good.
