Alargo White Tasting Notes

Tasted in Country Tasted by Published on Vintage Wine tasting notes
2018 U.S.A. Mark Squires, Wine Journalist www.robertparker.com 2016 The 2016 Alárgo Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14.4% alcohol. No price was set at this time. I've been increasingly seeing fine Assyrtiko off of Santorini, not that anyone is challenging the grandeur of the top wines there. Up to a point, this is another. Ripe, concentrated and chock full of fruit, this is pretty delicious. Lush, it tastes great and finishes well, with reasonable tension. It will be interesting to see how it develops, too. Therein lies the quibble—it has a smoky nuance I could do without, perhaps a touch of reduction. It came out as the wine aired and warmed. If that blows off, as it often does, this might be entitled to an uptick. Even now, it is pretty nice.
