Marion Passito Bianco IGT 2012 37.5cl
The vintage is not a typo. Current release is 2012, a passion project for Marion and one I am so grateful they pursue. Trebbiano and Garganega. 100% Appassimento (dried) grapes. Pressed, fermented in steel then aging in old barrel. 7 years in barrel before bottling, such a delicious wine.
“The 2012 Passito Bianco is exotic and floral, but also incredibly fresh, showing tropical florals, dried apricots, cinnamon and hints of tangerine. Its oily textures are nicely cut by bright acids, as this coats along the palate with sweet citrus tones, hints of mango, banana and vanilla custard that soothes. This is wonderfully balanced, leaving almond paste and vanilla custards. The 2012 is packed full of opulence, yet supremely balanced as well. It’s a blend of Garganega and Trebbiano Toscano.” – Vinous
