Mauro Vergano Vino bianco chinato Lulì Review And Tasting Notes
The Vino Bianco Chinato (Chinato white wine) Lulì by Mauro Vergano is a piece of the great tradition of Piedmontese aromatized wines.
It is a small, great bottle, produced starting from Moscato Bianco, to which cinchona, citrus peel, coriander, and cinnamon are added.
The residual sugar is 20%, so don’t expect dry vermouth as a triumph of aromas with a sweet and round base.
The concept behind this wine is revolutionary, that is, a return to the origins.
The wine must be the protagonist. In fact, the Moscato is harvested and then vinified to release all its sweet and aromatic potential.
On the other hand, the wines used as bases are often as neutral as possible to shape them with a mixture of spices and herbs.
In this case, the great aromaticity of Moscato is amplified to the nth degree and not distorted, by herbs and spices, making this wine unique.
Of course, it is not suitable for making martinis, but you can safely serve it as an aperitif if extended with soda and seasoned with an orange peel.
And if you feel creative, think of this wine as a pyrotechnic starting point for new sparkling cocktails, add soda and a drop of gin, and it’s already a delight.
In combination with white chocolate, rice cake and Portuguese-style milk it is fabulous, with apple cake it is pure poetry, if you then serve it with a plate of blue cheeses it’s a scream.
In short: not tasting it would be criminal!
