Bianco Orange 2018 – Abbazia San Giorgio
OMG! Don’t even try to discuss about this wine – just give your senses to it. This wine is a revolution with limited production. Produced on the magic island of Pantelleria, between Africa and Europe, you find non-grafted vineyards that are more like monuments than plants. Sandy, volcanic soils with extreme winds. This is a dry zibbibo that sounds more like an oxymoron because zibbibo from Arabic lands is typically a sweet wine. So you find a creamy, herbal and fruity wine of the nose but earthy and dry on the palate.
"Wine without a story is just a fruit juice with alcohol" .... so below you'll find a video of the winemaker.
Don't forget to turn on English subtitles.
