6-Bottle White Wine Sampler!
Here is a delicious assembly of wine refreshment from Italy and Spain (3 from each country)! Each of these dry whites emphasizes no / low oak, lean and energetic fruit, and luscious minerality.
2021 Abbazia de Novacella Grüner Veltliner - No, it's not Austrian! This hails from the Northern Italian realm of Alto Adige, also known for some of the world's best Pinot Grigio. Gorgeously-scented, beautifully-textured.
2021 Aia Vecchia Vermentino - Known as "Rolle" when rendered in France, Vermentino is best known as coming from Sardegna and - in this case - Tuscany, Italy. Tangy citrus and luscious melon flavors abound!
2021 Suavia Soave Classico - Made from the Garganega grape, this easy-to-love white is lean and lively. Wet pebble and a vague leafy-ness enhance the predominant message of lemon-lime.
2021 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Blanca - From the birthplace of Grenache Blanc comes a youthful expression, spelled the Catalan way (we're taking you south of Barcelona)! Wispy, pale fruit aspects wash over the palate, with an emphasis on white nectarine.
2021 Cuatro Rayas Verdejo - Verdejo is the most popular wine to drink on a hot summer day in Madrid. Vibrant with daisy petal and passionfruit pizazz, it's my fave fish taco wine!
2021 Izadi Rioja Blanco - This and its current day Rioja Blanco peers are indicators of how a once-mundane white wine type can transcend that stigma. Here is a truly great, place-honoring blend of no fewer than SIX different grape varieties!
