I love this wine. I first tasted it at VinItaly this year and was very excited to see the importer had finally gotten it here. This is one that is sort of for the geeks, as it's a little unusual. First of all, the color is light tan, like weak tea. In fact, looking at it, you'd be convinced the nose would be full of fino sherry notes from oxidation. But this is simply from color pigments in the skin. The nose, on the contrary, is full of honeycomb, fresh cut flowers, apple skin and the tiniest hint of caramel. The wine is fairly full and rich, but has nice, almost crunchy minerality with a pleasant streak of acidity to give it some bounce and keep it from being dull or heavy. Just an awesome wine that would be a blast to pair with any number of dishes as it's an incredibly versitile wine. In fact, it would be a shame to have it without food. Great price too! CM

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
