Bastianich “Vespa” Bianco, 2011, Friuli, Italy

12 Jan

DSC03189A white blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Picolit, a grape native to Italy’s Friuli region, which this wine calls home. The bouquet of citrusy minerality evolves into wildflowers, clover honey and ripe pear. The palate is intriguingly tannic for a white wine, with fine acid structure making it an ideal companion to rich seafood, like scallops seared in bacon fat. $40
