Derived from the name of the wild flower that grows round our winery, Alastro is a Grecanico blended with two notably aromatic varieties, Grillo and Sauvignon Blanc. Splendidly aromatic, delicately structured, with aromas of tropical fruit, fresh citrus and white flowers.
The wine has an intense color of straw yellow with golden hues, is lush, fruity and rich in bouquet, but not too woody flavor. On contrary elegant and fragrant, in spite of its spiciness and rich body...
It is indeed a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful. A slight mineral suggestion combines harmoniously with the flavour of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, cereal and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish.
A clear yellow colour with green hints which anticipate its freshness. On the nose youthful citrus and flowery notes, balanced by lively Mediterranean hints of peach, papaya and chamomile. Balanced and refined on the palate, thanks to a well-judged acidity.
The bouquet is clear, intensely vinous, with a hint of flowers, especially violets. On the palate, the Chianti is velvety, juicy, round, with a good body and structure.
