The region of Campania makes some of the best white wines in Italy, and Pasquale Cenatiempo's wines from the island of Ischia are yet another demonstration of this. Ischia is a volcanic island, and the whites do show the characteristic 'struck flint' character of volcanic terroirs. Cenatiempo's production is about half from his own grapes, which are biodynamically farmed, the rest coming from other growers around the island. Lefkòs is in effect a turbocharged version of the Ischia Bianco, and it tastes like it. Made from Pasquale's best vineyard, the wine shows the same balance as the regular bottling but with more intensity (white peach, green apples, floral and herbal hints) and at the same time somehow more elegance. Lovely with white fish or roast chicken.
