This blend of grecanico and chardonnay is a little dismaying at first because all one appreciates is the chardonnay, a common problem in Italian white wines in which chardonnay is added in too generous a dose and thus overwhelms the more delicate personality of the native grape involved. Not this time, though: with a little time in the glass, the winter melon and pretty white floral notes of the grecanico come through while the banana and grapefruit of the chardonnay subside. Clean and wonderfully pure in the mouth, with crisp acidity and decent complexity. The best Alastro to date.
