Colli di Catone Colle Gaio 2014

MCF Rare Wine

The 2014 Colle Gaio opens up with a wild display that mixes exotic spices with dried flowers and incense before giving way to ripe ginger-tinged apples and hints of honey. Its soft textures flood the palate with a savory display of salty minerals and apricot, and a bitter twang of hazelnut evolves toward the close. The weight and density here are nicely contrasted by stimulating acids, tempting the imagination as to what further cellaring will bring, as this finishes with citrusy persistence and lasting herbal tones. The Colle Gaio is a varietal Malvasia del Lazio that can be enjoyed today, but it will also evolve nicely through medium-term cellaring.
