Bibi Graetz Bugia 2015
I adore this wine. Showing a light and brilliant golden-straw color with faint amber highlights, the 2015 Bugia is a strongly mineral-driven expression from the Giglio island off the Tuscan Coast. The spirit of this wine is greatly guided by marine sensations of powdered oyster shell, salt and white stone. There are distant hints of stone fruit and honeysuckle that add just enough sweetness to help this wine from being too dry and hollow. Bugia offers a dab of creaminess to ensure a lasting impression in the mouth. This is pure Ansonica from sandy soils overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean. It is aged in stainless steel with 10% in French oak. I would love to taste it again in five years.
With floral scents of melon and apricot, this white turns spicy and plush on the palate, flirting with viscosity but staying fresh and spicy. Ansonica. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.
