When you think of white wine, you tend not to think dry, that is if you really haven't been exposed to a lot of white wines. Well, I have had a few dry whites, and for the most part was not impressed, however, this is about the journey, and not any prior wine biases that I might have, so I picked up this bottle with the a simple label on it.

The wine itself had very little in its description, but it did have the simple sentence of 'Dry White Wine.' While it was at least one week between purchasing the bottle and drinking it, I can say that I was very surprised. Consisting of 80% Garganega, 15% Chardonnay and 5% Soave Trebbiano grapes, I found this wine very refreshing and easy to drink at any time of the day. I actually took it down with some wings from Bahama Breeze (the Habanero and the Jerk; of course this was following a nice sauvignon blanc).

This wine has a subtle amount of acidity, and it would seem to me both nuances of fruits like peach and pear, and a dash of lemon citrus thrown in. I think that this would be great with anything with a marinara sauce. The finish of this wine is not long, but long enough, probably taking no more than ten seconds.

If you are really into wines, or getting into them, and not too much into fruity whites, then this will be a nice gem to stock up.
