THE REVIEW

A week or so too early for rosé? Not yet in the mood for the intense lemon, lime notes of Sauvignon Blanc? Do you often enjoy Chardonnay but are looking for a change? Me too!
     This time of year, I tend to reach for an Arnies. Italian whites are some of my favorites for the Spring and Summer months. They are crisp, clean and refreshing and are perfect transition wines from one season to another.
    Whether you enjoy grilling shrimp, slow poached halibut in olive oil or an antipasto salad, Arneis is always a crowd pleaser. Wonderfully aromatic and crisp, Pradalupo boasts well integrated aromas of white flower, herbs, tangerine, and wet stone minerality. It is vibrant on the palate with lively acidity and offers a very clean finish.
    Excellent as an aperitif, it is even better with fish and shellfish dishes. Its diverse gastronomic pairings know no seasonal limits. For instance, feel free to enjoy it with your favorite garlic and olive oil based pasta dishes. It can even stand up to asparagus - one of the most difficult vegetables to pair.Read More »
