2006 Jermann Vinnae "Servus Cella"

From:

Venezia-Giulia, Italy

Price:

$36

Serve with:

Hors d'oeuvres, light seafood

At the price, this is rather an indulgence for a little-known Italian white - with a screw cap no less. But what a wine it is. Made primarily from the little-known Ribolla Gialla grape, this dry wine delivers a world of complexity. The palette of flavors includes minerals, nuts, lime, pine, smoke, sweet peas and pears. Its length and tanginess are exemplary. All of Jermann's white wines excel, but this is the best of this exceptional line.
