Medium Body, Fruity (Chardonnay, Malvasia, Moscato, Sauvignon). IGT. Alc 12.5%.
Luca Maroni “The Overall Best Italian Wine 2020” + 99/99 “Best Producer 2020”.
A 'new' wine to the Singapore market - and sister wine to the very popular Super Tuscan VECCIANO (red). Expect notes of sweet citrus, peach and a touch of tropical fruit. A great wine to pair with rich fish dishes.
Tasting notes: Big hit of sweet citrus notes (yuzu?) and yellow flowers, with a palate of lime (Cala Mandi lime), grapefruit, peach … and yuzu again! ;)
NB: This wine can sometimes be found with slightly different spellings/labels, for example on Vivino. It can also be found listed under the LINE of Duca Di Saragnano*, as opposed to the ESTATE of Barbanera. See the links below to read more on this wine:
From the winery: "Brightly straw yellow colour shows light golden hues in the glass. Delicate floral aromas are enhanced by exotic fruits and mint, fresh apricot and lime. Natural freshness and minerality are perfectly balanced on the palate of this wine with complex aromas and a long finish. It perfectly pairs with appetizers, fish starters, tasty fish-based dishes and medium-seasoned cheeses."
* What’s in a name? In the case of the Barbanera family’s winery they chose to pay respect to a great legend whose descendant became a close friend of Luigi Barbanera (father of Marco and Paolo who now run the estate). The original Duca di Saragnano came from Campania but fled north to Tuscany, around the 10th Century, as foreign invaders took over much of southern Italy. The Duca di Saragnano was remembered as “amongst the bravest and noblest local defenders” of the Italian land, who “fought valiantly” against the aggressors. Centuries later the inheritor of the title ‘Duca di Saragnano’ met the Barbanera family, who had started out in 1938 with home-produced olive oil, cheeses, cured meat and wine, and granted the use of the prestigious name as “a token of his esteem”.
