With the new year, Le Carline chose to change the label and change slightly the way in which they make their wine Lison Classico. Once called Tocai, this white wine from the area of Lison-Pramaggiore is growing fast in number since its fruitiness makes it easy to drink. Le Carline, an organic producer, makes a version leaving the skins of the grapes to sit with the wine for a long time, allowing all the flavor to leave the skins and stay in the ‘must’. Typically this means that the color of the wine would be darker and more yellow and the wine itself would be more intense and flavorful. In fact, this Lison is powerfully herbal. Sage can be smelled as soon as the cork is popped. Mint, lemon, grapefruit, macintosh apple, pear and balsamic aromas follow. The light yellow green color with golden accents, shines in the glass. The freshness of the bouquet comes through in the taste. Crisp and clean, the acidity dries the mouth and clears our palate. It’s nicely balanced and not too heavy on the alcohol.
