Cenatiempo “Lefkos” Ischia Bianco Campania, Italy 2018 (750mL)
Beautifully textured, high-impact white from Ischia, the volcanic island in the Gulf of Naples. Its combination of aromatic expression, fruit concentration, and minerality, places it in elite company—alongside similarly striking island whites from places like Sardinia, The Canary Islands, and Santorini. This is a single-vineyard bottling comprised of 60% Biancolella and 40% Forastera, two hyper-local varieties grown in volcanic tuff and influenced by currents sweeping in off the Mediterranean Sea. Wild herbs, citrus, tropical fruits, crushed chalk…this is so evocative of its wild, windswept place of origin. Truly memorable and poised to age nicely over the short term (2-4 years).
