Menti - Roncaie Sui Lieviti

MENTI

Don’t let a hazy visual deter you. This is delicious juice. River rocks, lemon tart, yeasty nose and really just a Wie for pleasurable drinking. Not complex but certainly not boring. Palate has just the slightest touch of sweetness but the green, sharp acidity of Garganega shows up and held carry it over the palate leaving it refreshed and tingly. Lemoncello, granny smith apple, and some funky yeast/brioche notes give this kick on the back palate. Sunshine crusher for sure. Less think, more drink.
