A satisfying Italian blend of Trebbiano and Chardonnay, the Poderi dal Nespoli Nespolino Bianco.
Sample submitted for review. The wine can be found for as low as $9. It is imported by Kindred Vines.
Two of the main white grape varieties are sourced to produce Nespolino. The wine celebrates Nespoli and not only its local flavors, but also its combination with an international variety which has good results in the Romagna area.
Fresh and approachable, with a straw-yellow color and light green highlights. The perfume is intense: citrus notes of the Trebbiano are blended with riper tropical fruit aromas of Chardonnay, such as pineapple, papaya and mango. The final taste is an overall well-balanced feeling.
The 2018 Poderi dal Nespoli Nespolino Bianco (Rubicone IGT) opens with a pleasing but basic aroma of mostly citrus plus a bit of melon and tropical fruit.
Taking a sip reveals a fresh, simple and tasty wine. Super easy to drink, it features similar flavors to the nose with good balance, a smooth mouthfeel and lively acidity. This is refreshing stuff and a good for the unoaked Chardonnay crowd.
It ends with a dry, satisfying finish of good length.
