At just 30 years of age, this is Riccardo Baldi’s 12th commercial vintage, and it’s pretty clear from this stellar 2017 that practice has very much made perfection.  From 100% organic grapes fermented in tank and bottled with minimal sulfur, the wine crackles with green apple, preserved lemon, and green citrus aromas and flavors.  It’s energetic and fresh, with loads of salty minerality, but not at all harsh or sharp.  And both the palate and finish are long and lovely, with lingering apple, lemon and lime flavors that quench the most intense thirst (and call out for fresh shellfish!).
