“Another white wine that is sure to be a winner is a crisp Italian white wine. It is a 50/50 blend of Vermentino and Verdicchio. Even if these grapes are unfamiliar, this crisp and refreshing wine will win over all wine lovers. It is light with notes of orchard fruit, citrus, fresh-picked white flowers, honey, and almonds. Perfect to brighten up a cold winter’s night. And a great gift at only $12. Pair with fish tacos.”
“This wine comes from their modern, innovative and affordable Vitiano line. Of the Bianco, Dominga says it is ‘historical and traditional, with a classical soul.’ This wine is cultivated in partnership with a local university where Renzo teaches and students from all of the world participate in the harvest. Made of Verdicchio at 50% and Vermentino at 50%, this wine is gorgeously fresh and clean, spot-on acidity. Marry with grilled shrimp.”
“Why we love it: I am partial to Italian whites and Vitiano Bianco is a winner for sure, This is a balanced, delightful, and fresh wine with hints of lime, and pear with a herbaceous underscore. This is a clean, crisp perfectly balanced citrus and mineral finished white wine, and is made using equal parts Vermentino and Verdicchio.
Serve with chicken salads, lobster rolls or salads. Excellent with a cheese tray or fried clams! Vitiano Bianco was made from a collaboration in the experimental vineyards Falesco has planted with the University of Viterbo. The grapes (50% Vermentino and 50% Verdicchio) are like chocolate and peanut butter together and yield a wine that you can drink all summer.”
“Here’s an irresistible bargain in a white wine from Umbria’s Falesco estate. Composed of 50 percent each vermentino and verdicchio grapes and made completely in stainless steel, the Vitiano Bianco 2014, Umbria IGP, displays a pale straw-gold hue with a faint tinge of ghostly green; aromas of lemon and lemon balm, pear and peach open to hints of thyme and heather, jasmine and almond blossom; a few minutes in the glass add a dimension of lilac, gunflint and talc. It’s a spicy, savory and slightly saline white wine that features lip-smacking acidity and intensity and nicely chiseled layers of limestone and flint; the finish brings in more of the mineral element as well as a final fillip of cloves and slightly dusty rosemary. 12.5 percent alcohol. Begs for fresh oysters shucked from the shell, clam linguine or seafood risotto; also good as an aperitif. Very Good+."
“A blend of Vermentino and Verdicchio, the 2014 Vitiano Bianco boasts enormous freshness and crispness. Packaged in a screw cap bottle, the wine shows floral tones with peach and passion fruit. The mouthfeel is softer and sweeter than expected.”
