2001 Josto Puddu Vernaccia di Orisanto $20.99
This will be the most uniquely wonderful white wine you have tasted is some time. Vernaccia di Oristano is a sherry-like wine from Sardinia, which is distinguished from other Vernaccias only by the fact that it grows around Oristano, in the west of the island. The grapes are harvested and pressed in the standard way, then oxidatively matured in barrels for three or four years under a naturally-developing film of flor yeast. The barrels are not filled to the brim, allowing the flor to develop over the wine, controlling the rate of oxidation to a certain extent. The musty, nutty aroma which results from this ageing is known in the local dialect of Campidanese as murrai. Cettolini, a 19th-century Sardinian microbiologist (and thus particularly well placed to comment on the qualities of this wine) said of Vernaccia di Oristano that “the delicacy of its completeness conquers us... that curious taste of bitter fruit, so gracious, so seductive”.
