Saladini Pilastri Falerio Bianco 2017 / Marche / Italy
$14.95 per bottle / 12 packs
The Saladini estate in Marche has been producing wine for over 10 generations. The Organic Falerio Bianco is virtually too good to be true, based on a blend of indigenous and organically grown grapes that include Pecorino, Passerina and Trebbiano. Given the amount of flavour, structure and intensity you get for the price it is one to stock up on.
Floral on the nose with apple, lemon oil, lime, pear and faint herbal notes, the initial delicacy on the palate hides surprising body with a lovely freshness and an almond like finish that is appropriately dry as a bone.
