Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi Castello di Pomino Blanco 2012, Italy

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Castello di Pomino Blanco 2012, ItalyDennis Sodomka, writing in the Augusta Chronicle, recommended this Tuscan white from one of the region’s most “highly regarded areas for white wine”.

He said: “The wine is primarily Chardonnay with about five percent Pinot Blanc, all from hillside vineyards in one of Tuscany’s most highly regarded areas for white wine. In the glass you get a pleasant floral aroma, leading to smooth citrus and apple flavors. There is a touch of mineral in the long finish with a crisp acidity and plenty of elegance and finesse. But the lasting impression you get from this wine is the lush fruit flavors.

“The grapes are fermented separately in stainless steel (75%) and French oak barriques (25%). After 21 days of fermentation, the wine is aged four months in stainless steel and three months in oak barriques.”

Price: $16-18
