The 2017 Manzoni Bianco Forra is also all varietal but was brought up entirely in larger oak casks (also on lees). Its deep gold hue is followed by an exotic bouquet of honeyed apricots, beeswax, toasted spices, and orange blossom. Rich, medium-bodied, and lively on the palate, with bright acidity and a dry, clean finish, it's a gorgeously complex, singular white that's geared for the dinner table. ... More details

An unusual, quite dark-colored white with butterscotch, dried apples, camembert, pear jam and orange marmalade. Full-bodied and unctuous on the palate, but remaining on point through the acid-lifted finish. Drink now.

This exotic, light- to medium-bodied white layers a lip-smacking backbone of acidity with a well-spiced range of steeped peach, lemon curd, thyme and smoke-laced mineral accents. Lightly creamy, offering a sleek, lingering finish that echoes the aromatic profile. Drink now through 2024. 520 cases made, 45 cases imported.

The 2017 Manzoni Bianco Fórra opens to a bright off-gold color and produces aromas of honeysuckle, beeswax and apricot, although all said and done, this wine is rather neutral in terms of its aromas. This is a mid-weight white wine with some glycerin that adds volume and an unctuous texture to the palate that is capped off by drying mineral tones. This wine has the natural substance and heft to pair with white meat or shellfish. It should be interesting to see how this wine fleshes out with a few more years of bottle aging, and I'm willing to bet the score will need to be adjusted up at that time by a couple of points. A mere 6,180 bottles were made.

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

As the name suggests, the northern Italian wine region of Trentino-Alto Adige is made up of two separate areas, with Trento in the south, and the Adige river in the north. There are few parts of Italy quite as alluring for wine fans as Trentino-Alto Adige, as this is an area in which Italian wines become really quite unique and surprising. As the region is nestled in the foothills of the Italian Alps, it is quite a long way from the sun drenched islands of the south, or the rolling hillsides of central Italy. Indeed, the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige are packed full of fresh, vibrant alpine flavors and aromas, and are as influenced by the Germanic styles of wine making as they are influenced by those of the Italians, making the wines of this region really quite unusual, and utterly captivating. Wineries in Trentino-Alto Adige use both native and imported grape varietals for their wines, and they are generally considered to be amongst the finest in Italy.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
