Forli Bianco, Marta Valpiani 2018 (Emilia Romagna)

100% Albana from the hills around the town of Forli, just south of Ravenna on the Adriatic coast. This is made by Marta Valpiani and her daughter Elisa Mazzavillani from biodynamic vines planted between 1967 and 1987, hand harvested, fermented with native yeast and aged in concrete for 6 months, then bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added. Round and ripe with pears and wildflower with a juicy finish.
