99 Point Italian White!


2021 San Marzano Edda Bianco Salento...$19.99 / 750ml
Vine variety: Predominantly Chardonnay with native white grape varieties at about 100 meters above sea level. Shallow soil, with medium-fine texture. The grapes are destemmed and left in cryomaceration for a few hours. The next phase is the gentle pressing of the marc followed by static cold decanting so that it happens naturally. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barriques. Ageing: On yeasts in French oak barriques for 4 months, with weekly b√Ętonnage. Tasting notes: Straw yellow colour with golden reflections; mellow citrus fruits and delicate vanilla floral notes fill the nose; to the taste it is generous in its elegance, fresh, delicate and mineral. Best served with: Starters, first courses with fish, cheese.
In the glass, the EDDA Bianco has a straw yellow color with golden reflections; soft citrus fruits and delicate floral vanilla notes fill the nose. The taste is generous, elegant, fresh, delicate and mineral. The finish is long and soft. The wine goes well with starters and intermediate dishes of fish and shellfish, chicken or shrimp. But above all, great with soft cheeses.
