Wine Review: This yellow colored white blend from Italy opens with a honey and mild tangerine like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and shows nice life. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Bosc pear with hints of white pepper and honeydew melon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This white wine would pair well with a honey-sesame chicken dish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Bright yellow Bouquet: Intense with exotic-fruit aromas Taste: Dry; full flavored, soft and savory, with a lingering ripe-pear and bitter-almond finish Food Pairing: Ideal with seafood, white meats and pasta dishes
