2010 Massican Annia – Wine of the Week – “Dan Petroski, one of our Winemakers to Watch in 2010, has unveiled his 2010 lineup of steely, complex Napa wines. Petroski makes the Massican wines with Italy’s Friuli in mind, and this mix of Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Chardonnay is a perfect frame for his work. The icicle-like edge of the rare Ribolla grape comes through, giving impressions of alpine flowers, ripe almond and Meyer lemon. It offers that elusive mix in a white: flavor that’s big but not heavy. And it furthers Petroski’s mission of showing a new style of Napa white.”
