Mastroberardino Sannio Falanghina 2013 (750ML)
The nose whacks you with a cool sea-breeze of peach, pesto, and salt. It's also got this fantastic fennel thing going on and smells like sweet basil being extracted by the mid-day southern Italian sun.
It's a lot to take in, but these scents are subtle, playful, and really more of a tease for the palate than a reason to keep your snout stuck in the glass. This is an easy drinking wine, not a thesis project, and is really meant to be drunk ice-cold with some appetizers while waiting for your pasta or grilled fish to arrive. The bracing, mineral coated, expression is refreshing, cleansing, and finishes with a slight bite that is part salty, part bitter parsley and perfect for light Italian dishes packed with fresh vegetables and herbs from the fertile land that lured so many from the ancient world. - PJ
