2018 Cuvée Pialini
2018 Cuvée Pialini – in a limited edition of 1.200 bottles
»Pialini has a nice balance between drinking flow and focus.«
On the nose, citrus wrapped in bacon, crisp acidity of blood orange and grapefruit, with a spice of lovage. A slight saltiness on the palate, which counteracts the delicately bitter but fresh acidity of squeezed mandarins and orange zest. Diverse citrus notes also dance on the tongue, a bit like elves dancing a pas de deux across the pond. Freshly opened, the wine is characterized by classiness, which will change with the air, by a butteriness that takes over the aroma spectacle.
With air, the yellow aromas are displaced by blue ones with a fresh, full-bodied, creamy texture of the Kalamansi acid. The orange wine now beckons vehemently with creaminess and a sweetness of butter crumbles, without having lost any of its freshness.
Pialini has a nice balance between drinking flow and focus. A wine that can be drunk immediately or left to rest for a long time, the wine is very constant, the acidity decreases a little when opened, but the experience remains with the Kalamansi.
