Surprising Italian Whites that age

  1. Viogner in Sicily? Sounds divine and I love Pianetto as well !!! And Pieropan is an excellent Soave producer. Well written Tom – thank you for representing Italian wines the way that you do.

  2. Tom, what a great topic, and I was just thinking what to open tomorrow! I think I’ll open something from Edi Kante from Carso, his whites tend to show beautifully at 10 years of age, and I still have a few of his 1998’s and 1999’s, so I’ll see whether it can be extended beyond 10 years :-)

      How nice to hear from you and thank you for the excellent comment. I agree with you about the Edi Kante wines- they are beautifully structured. I hope the wines you mention will be in great shape when you try them.

  3. Fantastic article. I agree that Italian whites in general are underrated and it makes sense that they would age well as the best examples are wonderfully balanced with good fruit and good acidity. I am a huge fan of Italian whites – from the Gewurztraminers and Sauvignon Blancs of the North to Falanghinas of the South. I love good Soaves and Verdicchios as well. Cheers.

      Thanks for your kind words. Always nice to know there are fellow lovers of Italian white wines out there. As you commented, there are first-rate whites throughout Italy, from north to south. I’m always finding new surprises.
