“Prominent aromas of gooseberries and pear dominate the nose, along with subtle hints of quince. There is a hint of grapefruit and lime oil as the swirls begin. The palate is bright and it has a nice high acidity, amplifying the aromas. This is a great example of how the lower price point of this wine should taste.”
“a real bargain.” He writes, “Zenato’s wine is far more interesting than many Italian whites at this price, with tastes of stone fruits, especially pear and apricot, along with strawberry, citrus, banana, and touches of herb and spice.” “There is still a nice roundness that, combined with ample acidity, makes it a pleasure to drink and will beckon you to the next sip (and glass).”
“This is classic Provençal rosé served in 250-milliliters cans that were custom-designed to take over your Instagram feed. Raspberry, mint, and peach notes mingle with creamy strawberry yogurt in this elegant rosé that just happens to arrive in a can.”
“CITRA Trebbiano d’Abruzzo 2017 has a lot going for it. Trebbiano is the dominant white grape in the Abruzzo region east of Rome on the Adriatic coast, known for producing uncomplicated and quaffable light white wines that are enjoyable with fish, shellfish, or on their own.
“Citra’s Trebbiano certainly falls into that category and, served not too cold, it becomes more than that, showing good complexity with lemon and green apple tastes, accented by floral and herb notes and a long, citrusy, and slightly creamy finish.
It’s also a real bargain, with a suggested price of $10 but available for as low as $7 or so, making it a good choice as an easy-drinking house wine or party wine. And with 450,000 bottles produced, you should have no problem tracking it down. The region’s main red wine, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, is often a good value as well.”
