PV Tasting Notes
The golden coloured 2008 Lodano is made up of equal parts Chardonnay, Traminer and Riesling, a wonderfully clean and fruit driven wine. A lovely line is formed between the exotic fruit of pineapple and rosehip melted butter on the one hand and the lemon acidity on the other. full bodied, dense with a thick texture this sort of presents itself in distictly different camps, it has the almost oily texture of Chardonnay or Riesling but also resembles a late harvest Alsatian wine, aged entirely in 100% New French Oak, it is highly unusual and totally delightful.
90 points The Wine Entusiast Jan 2012
Lodano (a beautiful blend of Traminer, Riesling and Chardonnay) from coastal Tuscany seems perfectly engineered for local dishes such as cacciucco, a spicy fish soup from Livorno. The wine opens with bright, intense aromas of candied lemon, pineapple and apple piecrust.
I would happily serve this with almost anything, but it would best suit simple fish dishes, avoiding heavy or thick sauces, any seafood dish, like spaghetti alla vongole, Spatchcock chicken with lemon and honey, Bruschetta, ravioli, Risotto’s especially fish based, Salads, Salmon en Croute and stir-fries. The best match for this in my mind would be a plain Lobster or any type of white truffle dishe.
Bolgheri, on the Tuscan Coast is the home of one of the World’s finest vineyard sites, Tua Rita which was purchased in 1984 and founded on Rita and Virgilio’s insistence of retreating to a “quite place” and cultivating the land, their great passion. The first wine they felt good enough to be released was the 1992 Guisto di Notri a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which was instantly talked about in both National and International press for its depth of flavour and “Tuscanicity”. The land located 100 metres above sea level is rich in micro elements such as zinc and iron as well as marble the distinguish the wines with “mineral regionality”
