I have to admit two: I eat a lot of Italian food and I drink a lot of white wine. What I often struggle with, however, is how to take both of those enjoyments to the next level for a special occasion. I can always go out to Stella Alpina in Burlingame if I want a fine Italian meal, but what high-end Italian white do I bring for the occasion? I've got a cellar full of great Barolos, Brunellos, and various other interesting reds, but what do I break out when I need a stunner in the Italian bianco category? After months and months of revisiting the same old selections (verdicchio, soave, vermentino, etc), our buyer Greg put this bottle in my hand and told me to have fun. As a fan of white Burgundy, I was excited to find an Italian equivalent and I was not disappointed by the Antinori. It had everything I was looking for: nuance, clean flavors, underlying complexity, and just enough richness. It tastes expensive. Those of you looking for a next-level white for your next Italian dinner need look no further.
