Costa di Amalfi - Tramonti 2017 Giuseppe Apicella

This is a white wine from the Amalfi Coast DOC ( it has three sub sections ( Tramonti, Ravello, Furore). This wine is from Tramonti. ( see my detailed blog on the Tramonti visit on September 2018). This wine is made with Falanghina, Biancolella and Pepella. It is from the 2017 vintage, which has a very warm summer with low precipitation. The color is yellow pale straw, the viscosity is medium ( 13% abv). The nose presents a good bouquet with white flowers ( Jasmine), green apple mixed with pineapple. Very inviting. The palate confirms the nose and surprises us with a juicy body and a perfect balance of acidity and medium persistence and a strong minerality and also salinity ( like the salty air coming as sea breeze from the gorgeous Amalfi Coast in early afternoon ). A good enjoyable wine paired with any light appetizer or salad and any pasta with shellfish or fish cooked in the oven or grilled. PM: 88
