The Oenologist Recommend

The opinion of the oenologist

It’s the perfect moment to uncork a bottle of Alpi Retiche IGT Crespino 2018.
After 24 months in small oak barrels, followed by a 3-month assemblage in steel, it
was bottled in April 2022.
Surely, over 2 ample years of bottle aging can only enhance the achieved balance. On
the nose, it is expansive: ink, quinine, walnut, and on the finish, a rich cherry under
spirit, with no alcoholic note. On the palate, the potent tannins are now well
harmonized; the alcoholic component delivers a fresh, balsamic, long finish; the
persistence is enveloping.
The vintage 2018 is remembered as an excellent year for quality and quantity,
characterized by a very hot summer and an autumn with significant day-night
temperature swings. All the wines of this vintage undoubtedly have excellent aging
potential, and this Crespino only confirms it.
