Åsa’s Wine of the Month: Biancone, Renzo Marinai

>> Tuesday, March 30, 2010

My friend was so overwhelmed when she tasted Ronzo Marinai’s chardonnay that she decided to rename her cat Renzo, in homage to the winemaker. After having tasted the wine I think I might do the same thing, that is if I had a nameless cat. Biancone is made exclusively from chardonnay grown in the heart of the Chianti Classio zone, not far from the small town Panzano in Chianti. It has an alcohol level of 13% but it tastes dangerously light. It is actually very elegant, with aromas of vanilla and the typical, slightly buttery and nutty flavour that you get in some chardonnays. My recommendation is to make a hearty fish soup to go with the wine. Serve it at ten to twelve degrees, not colder. PS: If Renzo (the winemaker, not the cat) was flattered by having a cat named after him is yet to discover. Around 15 euro.

For being a white wine made in the heartland of Sangiovese i agree this is truly good.
Readers should´nt miss tasting his Chianti Classico and his Riserva. Among the best that is delivered from Chianti today.
