Colli di Luni is a little-known wine region in northwest Italy (near posh tourist hotspots Portofino and Santa Margherita) that produces crisp white wine perfect for al fresco sipping. This expression offers citrus, apricot and sweet almond paste flavors.
Here’s a rare and exciting blend of Bosco, Albarola and Vermentino from a cooperative winery in the beautiful Cinque Terre region of northern Italy. You won’t find these native grapes anywhere else and the wine is perfectly suited to the fresh fish dishes served in this gorgeous part of the world.
This Ligurian Vermentino is very clear and light, almost the polar opposite of the meaty, warmer styles that come from Sardegna or the Maremma. But still it pours on lime, mineral and stony notes, and ultimately it’s a healthy, crisp wine that will cut through vinaigrettes and garlic like a hot knife through butter.
Vermentino is a native grape of Italy that offers fresh tones of chopped basil, lime and stone fruit. This expression is no exception and the wine is well suited for light lunches of pasta or chicken salad.
This is a very pretty expression of Vermentino from northwest Italy with fresh notes of citrus, honey, grapefruit and stone fruit. The wine is light and easy, with lean crispness and a fresh note of spice on the close.
Sangiovese, Cannaiolo and Ciliegiolo grapes are blended to produce a sharp, brambly wine with bright aromas of forest berry, white almond skin and cut green grass. This is crisp and sour on the close.
