The 2016 Bianco Arboreus is finessed and floral with notes of crystallized ginger, dried flowers and a dusting of sweet spice. It’s silky and round on the palate, coating all that it touches with vivid apricot and hints of young kiwi; a staining of minerality mounts toward the close. This finishes long, lightly structured and with cheek-puckering tension, as a sweet and sour interplay of citrus plays out. The 2016 is simply stunning and amazingly balanced; what’s more, is that it should mature beautifully in collectors’ cellars. Wow. These grapes are farmed using an ancient training method where the vines are “married” with trees and grow up along their trunks. Giampiero Bea farms fifteen small parcels of these old vines throughout the region to create the Arboreus.
