2017 Giornata "Il Campo Bianco" Paso Robles White Blend

SKU #1404291 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 When looking for an affordable table wine with great packaging and unique flavors, opt for this blend of primarily Pinot Grigio and Falanghina, with touches of Vermentino and Verdelho. Aromas of light honey and Meyer lemon pith lead into a palate that is rich at the core with almond cream but surrounded by tangy grapefruit rinds. *Editors' Choice* (MK)  (12/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A Pinot Grigio-based blend, the 2017 Bianco is a beauty, offering up aromas of musky peach, herbs and lemon oil. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, chalky and mouthwatering, with plenty of pretty fruit and a fragrant finish. Enjoy it over the next couple of years. (WK)  (5/2018)

90 points Vinous

 Vivid yellow-gold. Dried pear, pungent flowers and a touch of herbacity on the pungent, mineral-accented nose. Dry and focused on the palate, offering nicely concentrated, chewy orchard and pit fruit flavors that become more lively as the wine stretches out. Shows very good clarity and depth but comes off nervy. Finishes long and gently spicy, with a subtly sweet honey note sneaking out. (JR)  (9/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "60% Pinot Grigio, 30% Falanghina and Vermentino. Harvested in late August/early September 2017, the components of our il Campo Bianco were crushed, destemmed, and soaked on their skins for a few hours. Small-basket pressed into stainless steel , and fermented naturally with no yeast or other additions to the process. Tasting notes: Our requisite springtime white, this wine is perfect as the weather warms. Falanghina adds a lightly floral note to Pinot Grigio’s bright fruit and mineral character. Orange blossom, citrus, quince and ginger highlight the aromatics with jasmine, mango, and almond notes framing the bright and refreshing palate. It’s known around here as Stephy’s "porch pounder."

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
