(2012) It's a Sauvignon Blanc, but coming from the Langhe region that makes it a relatively rare beast. The nose has a herbal influence (the wine's name, Basarico, means 'basil' in local dialect) as well as fresh lemon and apple peel, suggesting a bit of weight and richness. It's a Sauvignon more akin to Sancerre than Marlborough in style, though in the mouth the fruit is sweet and full, really filling the mouth with texture. With very good acidity in the finish and that fruit-filled mid-palate, a lovely food wine and a nice to try something a little bit different. A Wine of the Week recently, see my full video review.
