The 2013 Robola is the unoaked version here, just bottled in December 2013. As time goes on, I become more impressed with the consistent excellence with this bottling from Gentilini. Admittedly very young (it was tasted in mid-March), this was quite tense on the lingering finish as it warmed. Nuanced with a touch of dried peach, a bit of pear and melon rind, it displays concentration, flavor and focus. As it warmed, it improved and evolved, demonstrating again why I think this winery has helped to convince people that there should be more Robola in the world. This will not impress with sweetness, ripe fruit, power or weight. It is simply unaffected and unadorned, with fresh, tank-aged purity laced with flavor on the finish. As impressive as it was on first tastes, it showed notably better the next day, even more vibrant and lively. It should hold decently for several years, might go longer, and might even improve with a year or so of cellaring. It is still nice to drink these fresh and young, however, so don’t hesitate to drink it this summer. At the price point, this is one of the nicest bargains in new-release Greek whites this issue. Drink now-2018

Wine maker notes
Mavrodaphne grapes are bought from a single, high-altitude vineyard. Vinification and bottling is completed at the Gentilini winery. Fermented in steel vats and aged for 12 months in French oak casks. Dark red wine with layers of red fruit, spice, licorice and wild mint. On the palate, it is rich and complex with soft, round tannins and a long finish.
