The 2020 Bianco Obvius is an unfiltered blend of 75% Trebbiano to 25% Vermentino with a smoky bouquet of musky dried peaches, apricots and hints of ginger. It’s soft-textured with a balanced sweetness, contrasted by salty minerals and notes of sour melon. Hints of pineapple linger under an air of pretty inner florals, as this tapers off long, spicy and refreshing. Very nice, and it’s interesting to note that the Obvius Bianco is produced through spontaneous fermentation and without the addition of any sulfur.

Here’s something different. An unfiltered, organic young Toscana white with super clean aromas and flavors of lightly honeyed apple, spiced pear and light cider apple. Touch of creamy almond paste comes through on the medium-bodied palate. Trebbiano and vermentino. From organically grown grapes. Quaffable now. Screw cap.
Winery
Innovative thus so simple to understand, this wine is willing to explore new fields of taste, but in a modern cultural environment, where precision of scents, redox and volatile stability and the overall reliability of the wine over time are essential elements. The 2020 vintage showed out to be quiet “classical”, having been relatively fresh and rainy both in spring than summer; its wines turned out to be pretty balanced and elegant.

Region: Tuscany

All over the stunning region of Tuscany in central Italy, you'll see rolling hills covered in green, healthy grapevines. This region is currently Italy's third largest producer of wines, but interestingly wineries here are generally happy with lower yields holding higher quality grapes, believing that they have a responsibility to uphold the excellent reputation of Tuscany, rather than let it slip into 'quantity over quality' wine-making as it did in the mid twentieth century. The region has a difficult soil type to work with, but the excellent climate and generations of expertise more than make up for this problem. Most commonly, Tuscan vintners grow Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes, although more and more varietals are being planted nowadays in order to produce other high quality wine styles.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
