Cesarini Sforza 1673 2011

Alluring on the nose – a beautiful melange of citrus zest with candied lemon, yellow grapefruit and nectarine. This melds with slightly exotic floral tones, sweet basil and gentle tropical and melon fruit, supported by subtle autolytic creaminess. Quite delicate on the palate, focusing on ripe citrus and the sweet freshness of recent disgorgement. It feels fairly airy and transparent, not really trading on acidity or sugar but just breezily closing out with slightly drying chalkiness. Dosage is low, but just high enough to harmonise and freshen the fruit – nicely judged (I can’t find any information but it certainly seems below 5g/l). Drink young
