2013 Venezia Giulia Chardonnay Edi Kante - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



The Carso is a strange place to grow grapes: this limestone plateau, hundreds of meters above the Adriatic coastline and not far from the city of Trieste, has practically no soil! When Edi Kante planted his vineyards, he had to carry over heaps of red clay dug up from deep gulleys that dot the landscape—the only place where soil can be found. These Chardonnay vines survive thanks to this thin layer of dirt, and then are met with nothing but hard rock below. Factor in the proximity to the sea, and Kante’s wines are pure mineral with a crisp, saline finish. You’ll also find fleshy white fruit and a lovely creaminess, so there is an element of charm to coat the stone. Drink or hold. –Anthony Lynch
