Gentilini Robola Kephalonia 2008
This fresh, grapefruit-inflected white is made from the indigenous Greek grape, Robola, and provides a transporting waft of briny ocean air - no surprise given the fact that it hails from the island of Cephalonia, just off the western coast of Greece. Vivacious acidity and a lingering minerality (the grapes are grown on chalky soils) add up to a world class wine that begs for seafood.
External Reviews for Gentilini Robola Kephalonia
Located on the island of Cephalonia in the Ionian Sea, the Gentilini winery has been making wines since the early 1980s. Robola is a native variety from this region, creating a white that is fresh and light, with citrus, floral, and almond notes. A great mineral finish, too!
