Arbe Garbe Sonoma County White Blend 2016

$34.99

93 Points                                             One of our favorite new white discoveries of the year!  A delicious blend that we highly recommend. 93 Points Robert Parker: "The Arbe Garbe is a blend of Malvasia, Tocai and Ribolla Gialla. This is an exotic fruit cocktail of a wine with gorgeous aromatics of mango, caramelized melons, honeysuckle, apricot, a touch of pineapple, strawberry and even cherry notes, making for an intense, round and juicy wine. It is an intriguing wine that merits serious attention from readers." 92 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The White Wine Sonoma County is absolutely gorgeous. Sweet, floral aromatics lead to apricot, lemon confit, jasmine and mint. Beautifully perfumed throughout, the 2015 offers a compelling interplay of exotic fruit, lifted aromatics and pliant texture. Not surprisingly, it has much in common with the white blends of Friuli. The 2015 is all class." Arbe Garbe winemakers Letizia and Enrico Maria Bertoz make white wines in the style of the great white wines of their native Friul, with a little California flair.

Oooo baby. Floral and seductive on the nose. Perfumed; jasmine, lime blossom, lavender, poached pear, candied citrus, nectarine, grapes, sweet herbs, cream, a kiss of honey. Palate starts out with juicy fruit character, then suddenly moves to pith, wet stones, olive, and a savory element that I find in so many Friuli-blends with Ribolla. While grippy and enticing there’s a richness on the mouthfeel that makes this wines feel so classy, very soft approach with the oak here. 45 Malvasia Blanca, Ribolla Gialla 30, 25 Friulano.
