Description

Consistently one of my white wines of the year if only because this Pecorino delivers so much more than any other version at this level I've tried, and for such a good price - genuinely fine white wine. Vineyards at Cona, Frontone and Macerone are fermented in stainless steel for Luigi's 'junior' bottling that would compare favourably to anything from Alto-Adige, or even good Chablis. In the difficult 2014 harvest Luigi chose not to bottle his top, old-vine bottling (one of Italy's finest whites), so all that concentration has gone into this amazing value buy.


Bright gold-tinged straw. Aromas of green fig, yellow melon and lime; much less Sauvignon-like than in the recent past. Fresh and juicy, showing refreshing acid lift to the precise yellow melon and chamomile flavors. Finishes clean and long, with Pecorino-typical tannic bite. This refined, meatier-than-usual version of Giulia (which is Cataldi Madonna’s entry-level Pecorino wine) benefits from the addition of the top-of-the-line vecchie vigne Pecorino, which wasn’t bottled in 2014. This strikes me as the best Giulia bottling ever made, and at only 12.5% alcohol, which isn’t much for a grape variety that builds up sugar levels very easily.
