Profile

Smell

Perfumed and expressive on the nose, Brugnano's V90 Insolia shows distinct floral notes (think honeysuckle), along with vibrant lemon zest, ripe pear, and apple. As the wine warms up in the glass, hints of blanched almonds, nettle, and peach emerge.

Taste

Medium-bodied and ripe on the palate, with flavours of waxy apple skin, pear, and nectarine. The texture of this wine is fascinating, with fresh acidity lending energy and balance to a weightier mouthfeel. If you like fuller-bodied whites like Viognier or Chardonnay, especially unoaked examples, this is the wine for you!

Pairing

Match with stuffed artichokes or Mediterranean-inspired seafood dishes like grilled calamari or swordfish finished with lemon.

Aromas and Flavours

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Floral

You just received a bouquet from a secret admirer and the smell is intoxicating.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Description

It's no secret that we're big fans of Italy's dizzying array of indigenous grapes here at WineCollective, so we're always thrilled to share a new favourite! Brugnano is a small family-owned winery located in north-western Sicily and run by brothers Francesco and Giuseppe Brugnano. Their tiny (less than 4 acres!) farm is planted primarily to native grape varieties, through which Sicily's unique viticultural environment can be expressed.

Insolia is thought to have originated in Sicily, but it's also grown in Tuscany, where it's more commonly called Ansonica. While often used as a blending partner for other white grape varieties like Vermentino, Catarratto, or Grillo, on its own, Insolia produces textured, complex whites that can even display a hint of tannin. Brugnano's example is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel to preserve freshness, and aged for about four months before release. Enjoy at about 10 C over the next two years.
