2006 Folonari Riesling

From: Pavia, Italy Price: $ 9 serve with: seafood, spicy Asian cuisine

Riesling is associated with Germany, Austria, France's Alsace region, Australia, Washington state - but seldom with Italy. This crisp, just-off-dry version of this noble white-wine grape is simply a wonderful value, however. It offers generous flavors of citrus fruit, apples, peaches and tropical fruit, but somehow never crosses the line into being overblown. It offers good acidity, a welcome touch of minerals to offset the fruitier flavors, and a zingy finish.
