Following up on my last dive into the Anselmi world, and this Anselmi San Vincenzo 2021 aka ‘Soave that we can’t call a Soave’, is the pick of the range.
It’s a modern, screwcap-sealed Soave with width and some intrigue. Tight, lemon balm tangy fruit with a little lemon toast. Great concentration – a real essence of lemony fruit here. Long and pristine flavours and that lemon grapefruit Garganega thing. It’s a bit rounder than some of the more piercing Soave out there, but this manages to have the mouthful of fruit, tang and concentration well managed. Want a comparison wine? Think the best of Barossa Semillon, with a bit of x-factor.
Best drinking: nowish. 18/20, 93/100. 12.5%, $40. Single Vineyard Sellers (Australian importers). Would I buy it? Worth a bottle.
