The 2020 Santorini, sourced from old vines (50+ years), is dry, unoaked and comes in at 14.3% alcohol. Big and ripe but perfectly balanced, this is a wine that adds some spice and some of that characteristic that many might call saline. It remains fresh on the finish while opening up and airing out. This was tasted a bit later in the year than most recent vintages, but it does seem mostly resolved, ready to roll and harmonious today. I’m less sure about how well it will age. It if holds and develops well, it will be entitled to an uptick in score. Still, this is a beauty just now and it comes in at a rather nice price point.
