2019 Lamoresca Bianco Vermentino Corso

Sicily, Italy

Another Sicilian god, Fillipo's Lamoresca range will take you on a journey. The Vermentino Corso is an indigenous Sicilian grape and taken from young vines planted over clay and limestone around 430 metres above sea level. Two days of skin contact, then 6 months in a 3000L old barrel. This spent two days on skins, followed by six months in a single old 3000 litre barrel. Layers of oranges, salinity, exceptional minerality and some rose and honey on the nose. Round, complex and powerful.

About the maker

In the rolling hills of Sicily's interior, the middle of nowhere, lies the incredible Lamoresca vines with the smouldering Etna in the distance.

Filippo Rizzo's plot is planted to native Sicilian grapes like a Nerocapitano (Frappato) for the reds, and the extremely rare Vermentino Corso for his white. The area covers five hectares and vines are up to 60 years old, planted over a mix of sand and clay at an elevation of 430 metres above sea level. There are enormous temperature differentials between day and night over summer, unusual for what is otherwise normally a moderated summer climate. The vineyard work is practical and organic, with Filippo choosing to pair things right back to let the character of these special grapes shine through. The wines are striking. Compact, powerful, full of energy but riddled with complexity and flavours that are rarely experienced.
