Bastianich Vespa Bianco 2012

Bastianich Vespa Bianco 750ml 2012       
Sku: 16576

The flagship wine of the Bastianich estate, Vespa Bianco was created to showcase the power and evolution that a great Friulian white can have. Consisting of equal parts Sauvignon and Chardonnay with a measure of Picolit, Vespa becomes more than a sum of its parts, a wine of uncommon complexity and longevity.

Tasting notes
A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. The palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it no only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.

 Wine Spectator 90 points (Jun 30 2015)
An elegant, medium-bodied white, with a saline underpinning layered with flavors of creamed almond, baked pear, lemon preserves and beeswax. Lightly floral on the well-cut finish. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Picolit. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made.-AN
 Vinous 92 points (Jun 2015)
A rich enveloping wine, the 2012 Vespa Bianco is quite open and expressive today, with plenty of stone fruit character. Mint, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes blossom in the glass, adding to the wine’s breadth and complexity. This is an especially exotic, layered Vespa Bianco.

Food pairing
Roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas.
