Vigneti Boveri Giacomo Piazzera 2019


A very mineral release, more so than the 2018 that I reviewed last year. Sea spray, citrus salt, crushed rock, and lemon water make for a tensile opening suggestive of a more youthful release than 2019. Air and temperature relax things a little, allowing for hard cheese, citrus preserves, a whisper of lemon blossom and a glimmer of grilled nuts to creep in. This is all about focus, purity, and precision. The palate has lovely intensity and lift, with white peach, green apple, lemon and slatey minerals gliding through the palate within a pillowy texture. There’s a good lick of chalky grip to the finish, sitting with the acidity to provide frame and carry. A very classy and elegant release.
