2017 BASTIANICH SAUVIGNON BLANC
AN ITALIAN WHITE TO REMEMBER!
ALPINE WINE: FRUIT MEETS ROCKS FOR MARRIAGE MADE IN HEAVEN! The Bastianich winery was founded in 1997 by Joe Bastianich (owner of Babbo in NYC & EATALY worldwide & the man who used to write my checks) & his mother Lidia (celebrity chef extraordinaire). Their vineyards are located about as far northeast as one can get in Italy’s Colli Orientali del Friuli region which borders Slovenia. The Bastianich Sauvignon Vini Orsone opens to citrus, passion fruit, almond blossom and some fresh mint. The wine is almost lean bodied and laser focused with a subtle textural fiber that gives it nice weight without being heavy. This works with anything that calls for a seriously good dry white wine.
