That’s Amore! Italian Whites To Delight!

Try something a little different this summer, Italian whites. We love, love, love these wines! The flavors as well as the grape varietals just roll off your tongue: Falanghina, Cortese, Vermentino, Insolia, Verdicchio, and Tocai. Cin cin!

Borgo M Fruilano
This Tocai truly expresses the potential of the variety. On the nose, there are aromas of dried flowers and citrus fruit with the typical nuttiness that Tocai tends to show. On the palate it is fresh, well balanced and soft with a minerally finish.

Umani Ronchi Verdicchio
Distinguished by its bottle with a black label in the shape of a giant exclamation point, this fresh Verdicchio shows simple lines and lively flavors of citrus, peach, dried hay and stone fruit. It’s a light-bodied wine with tart acidity.

Banfi Principessa Gavia Gavi
Cortese di Gavi is an historical grape variety of the lower Piedmont Region. Principessa Gavia is made from Banfi’s estate-grown grapes. A fresh, crisp white, with tangy lemon, green apple and grass flavors. This Gavi is balanced and leaves a mouthwatering finish.

Cecchi Litorale Vermentino
Litorale is a white wine produced by the Cecchi family in Maremma, a land where the sun, the sea, and wind imprint unique characteristics to the Vermentino grape. A wine with floral aromas with hints of brininess. Aged in wood for nine months, this is soft and full, yet with a crisp backbone of refreshing acidity.

Vendetti Falanghina “Vandari”
From the Campania region of Italy. The bouquet is fragrant, floral and fruity. The taste is dry with good acidity and a wonderful mix of floral and fruity scents that suggest green apple, white flowers, and tropical fruit. One of my favorite Italian varietal.

Principa Di Butera Insolia
From Sicily and made from the Insolia grape. The bouquet shows elegant minerals with fresh apples, tangerine, cream-sickle and exotic flowers. On the palate the wine is dry, medium bodied, refreshing and reveals mouthwatering citrus flavors, tangerine, sweet almond and stone minerals that lead to a long and crisp finish.
