Review: 2011 Sartori Ferdi Bianco Veronese IGT

Sartori FerdiA unique white wine made entirely from garganega grapes from the Soave region of Italy. (As with the red wine Amarone, these grapes are dried before they are vinified, spending 40 days in the sun boosting their sugar levels.) The wine is partially fermented in stainless steel and partially in oak.

The wine initially offers a very muted nose. This opens up as the wine gets warmer, with honey and clear apricot notes evident. On the body, it’s surprisingly vibrant, again offering ample apricot with a slight caramel edge to it, particularly on the finish. The body is big, with floral elements that dance in and out on the tongue and in the nostrils.
