Sweetly scented and delicately perfumed, the 2020 Biancolella Tenuta Frassitelli opens in the glass to reveal baked apples and pears complemented by white flowers, a dusting of sweet spice, lemon zests and hints of vanilla bean. It’s rich and weighty upon entry, yet it is quickly lifted by cooling herbal tones, as orchard fruits wash across the palate, leaving a mineral tinge behind. This resonates on pretty inner florals and a flourish of green citrus, tapering off lightly structured and classically dry. I followed the 2020 Biancolella Tenuta Frassitelli for three days, watching it slowly evolve. Remarkably, the last glass was certainly the best. Bury this in your cellar to watch it fully come to life over time.
