Methius Talento Trento DOC 2002

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

60% Chardonnay/ 40% Pinot Noir grown between 350 and 500 meters of elevation near Faedo. 35% of the Chardonnay is barrel fermented; the remainder of the wines are fermented in Stainless steel. Aged 5 years on the lees which include three strains of yeast to add complexity. Riddling twice a year, dosage at disgorgement to 6.5 grams liter residual sugar. Michele advises that the bottles need 7-8 months after being finished to fully integrate and then evolve positively for the better part of a decade. Deep yellow in the glass with medium sized bubbles and a slight mousse. Smoky notes great the nose then slightly exotic banana tones, really opens up gradually revealing an incredible perfume of toast, dried pear, subtle integrated wood and citrus and floral topnotes. Apon entry there is a first wave of citrus tinged orchard fruits that are accented with light toast and yeast notes turning a bit darker on the back end with notes of nuts and even a touch of funghi entering the mix. The texture is very fine and soft in the mouth and the dosage keeps the wine round without being too obviously sweet. Finishing with great length and focus as the clear and crisp mineral and toast notes cleanse the palate. 94pts
