93

The 2015 Bianco Arboreus bursts from the glass with a rich and nearly tropical mix of green melon, papaya and sweet mint. It coasts along the palate with glycerol-like textures that are perfectly balanced by saline-mineral tones, as ripe orchard fruits and sweet spices cascade across its juicy acid core. It finishes a bit shorter than anticipated, yet leaves a lasting impression, as the cheeks pucker with tension, and a lemony concentration slowly tapers off. The 2015 Arboreus is the product of a warm vintage, which you feel in its sapidity. It spent 22 days macerating on the skins.

Made with Trebbiano Spoletino, the Paolo Bea 2015 Arboreus sees 22 days of skin maceration and 95 days on the fine lees. Structure is underlined in this vintage that saw very sunny and warm conditions throughout the growing season. There is tannic bite to the wine, but the tannins feel firmly polished instead of feeling dusty, like you sometimes get with skin-macerated whites. To the palate, this full-bodied white is generously textured and creamy with honey, saffron and apricot. The Arboreus vineyard is located eight kilometers from the winery. Production is 11,970 bottles.
