2009 Terrano Edi Kante - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



While whites make up the bulk of his production, Signore Kante also dabbles in rosso, focusing primarily on the Terrano grape, a local specialty native to the Istrian peninsula and grown all along the Italo-Slovenian border. Like his whites, it appears to have been chiseled out of Carso limestone. It also boasts a fascinating aromatic palette, hinting at violets and tart blackcurrant, along with a twang of amaro bitters and balsamic spices. Its low alcohol and bracing acidity—even in a riper vintage—make it a wonderful food wine; slice up some prosciutto for an infallibly mouthwatering pairing. –Anthony Lynch
