2019 Gentilini Robola (750ml)

Robola from Kefalonia, Ionian Islands, Greece


The 2019 Robola, seen with about 14 weeks in bottle, is unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. It has just one gram of residual sugar and seven of total acidity, making a nice crisp white with a fair share of energy. Laser focused, this has a tart edge on opening, but it still has some obvious fruit. That was admittedly not so obvious until the next day, when it fleshed out and became more expressive. It finishes with power and seems more substantial than its style would suggest. There's a long, juicy finish that is enticing too. This will show better in late summer, or perhaps, even next spring. Indeed, it did not show its best—fully displaying its great fruit—until some three days had passed. Under screwcap, it should hold well. There is no rush.
