Wine Review: This pale straw colored white blend from Italy opens with a mild green melon like bouquet with a hint of yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a blend of Bosc pear and green apple with a touch of mild grapefruit and lime in the background. The finish is dry and pleasant. This is a very nice everyday white wine. It would pair well with many foods. Chicken piccata with angel hair pasta came to mind first for me. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Brilliant yellow. Bouquet: Fruit-forward with varietal notes of pear, apricot, lime, and herbs. Taste: Dry and well balanced with crisp acidity and lush fruit flavors. Ideal with white meats, grilled poultry, and entree salads. Perfect also as an aperitif.
