This excellent wine from Italy is difficult to define, but in simpler terms, suffice it to say it has some of the best characteristics of both Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. It’s a nicely bodied white with melon, peach and pear with a hint of honey on the tongue. Juicy and balanced with lots of citrus, no lingering aftertaste, and a long, slightly bitter finish. This one may surprise you — we predict you’ll want a second bottle.
