Anselmi I Capitelli IGT Passito Bianco
Anselmi I Capitelli IGT Passito Bianco, Roberto Anselmi, Half-bottle
Roberto Anselmi represents for the Veneto region a new breed of wine-makers, he is an icon for other producers of white wine around Italy. Roberto is one of the fastest, most energetic winemakers around which helps to explain the tremendously fast ascent of Anselmi into the 'club' of top white winemakers in Italy, he believes in minimal handling of the wine and bringing out the full fruit expression and flavour of the Trebbiano di Soave and Garganega grapes. Stunningly rich and complex, packed with apricot, honey and pear flavours with tobacco and cedar notes, it is smooth, subtle and velvety. Ripe bunches are selected and put in a single layer in small cases (plateaux). A second selection of bunches of grapes suitable for drying on mats in a ventilated room is also made. During November bunches show evidence of 'nobile botrytis'. In February, pressing takes place in pneumatic presses and the very sweet must ferments naturally in small oak barriques. Try with Creme brulée, cheese cakes, richly flavoured ice creams and sticky toffee puddings. Drinks on release and will mature for up to 20 years in bottle. 100% Garganega.
