Ricci Rispetto 2009 Piedmont 14% This white is a 50/50 blend of chardonnay/sauvignon blanc (not mentioned on bottle) that is co-fermented in stainless steel, then spends 4 months in acacia barrels. It then goes through refermentaiton in bottle to create a natural spritz-driven vivacity. Given its pronounced mineral aromas and flavors, smooth, dense texture with firm acidity, I had a hard time identifying varietal characters aligned to either grape.
