Wine Review: This 100% Zibibbo white wine from Italy is a very pale golden color. Its bouquet explodes out of the glass with orange blossom, white peach and dried apricot aromas. It has a medium body and medium acidity, is barely semi-sweet and mouth coating. Interesting flavors of pear, dried apricot and almond with hints of honey and saline. The finish drifts away nicely. Sip on its own or pair with parmesan crusted tilapia. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Lighea 2017 has a brilliant straw yellow color with greenish reflections. The nose offers a rich and fragrant bouquet with classic notes of orange blossom combined with citrusy scents (citron, bergamot) and nuances of Mediterranean scrub. The nose is perfectly reflected on the palate, enlivened by a fresh mineral vein. Recommended with all types of oily fish, baked pasta in white sauce, fried fish.
