SILLERY OLTREPÒ PAVESE 2021 BY FRECCIAROSSA
Sillery Oltrepò Pavese 2021 by Frecciarossa is a wine that we only get a couple cracks at a year—at best. This northern Italian white though being from a top-notch outfit, was relatively unknown until recently, but its popularity has (deservedly) exploded, and we can’t get enough of it.
Sillery is Pinot Noir Blanc–meaning that this is white wine produced from red grapes. The only place where this is common is in Champagne. It tastes like Blanc de Noir Champagne without the bubbles. Yes, it is refined and extremely drinkable, and not to mention, absolutely delicious. It has an average score of 4.8/5 stars from our clients, with near-identical scoring for previous vintages as well. I’ve included a number of their reviews below. One such buyer even stated:
“It has become the only white wine I want to drink…”
– Martha S.
Frecciarossa, who recently celebrated their 100th birthday, are one of the masters of Pinot Noir in Italy. The quality here should justify a much higher price point.
This vinous masterpiece promises to blow you away, whether drinking now or over next handful of years. Drink luxury for under $23. We can literally never get enough Sillery, because the demand for it has become so high.
