The 2018 vintage of the now legendary “Bianco” from Le Coste, not to be mistaken for the “Le Coste Bianco” (very confusing, yes) is a blend of mostly Procanico and Malvasia, with a smaller portion of ancient local grapes Moscato Giallo and Roscetto from 50 years old vines. The biodynamically grown grapes, which draw nutrients and vigour from rich volcanic soils, ferment with their own yeasts and see a maceration of about 2 weeks in tronco conical wooden vats, after which it ages in old wood for no less than a year. It’s a veritable and awe-inducing masterwork of sheer power, primal force and super-refined finesse, enchanting with shimmering runes of mimosa petals macerated in Calvados, caramelised pecans, smoked hay, preserved peaches and grilled tamarind with nutmeg.
