Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone DOC 2015

The legend goes that in the 12th century, a wine-loving bishop was traveling through the Italian countryside on his way to see the coronation of the Pope. As he traveled, he would send a scout ahead of the convoy to let him know the wine of the area was good by marking “Est” (“It is”) above an inn's door. As the scout traveled ahead to Montefiascone, the wine was apparently so good, that the scout marked that location with “Est! Est!! Est!!!” Montefiascone remains an excellent wine today, particularly so when crafted by Riccardo Cotarella, who blends 50% Trebbiano, 30% Malvasia, and 20% Roscetto together for legendary results.

Tasting Notes

Delicate straw-yellow in color, the nose offers playful aromas of citrus, apple, and white flowers. On the palate, its crisp acidity is balanced with soft flavors of pear and melon which make for an easy-to-drink, refreshing wine.

Food Pairing

Drink this wine on its own, or pair it with grilled fish, velouté sauces, chicken satay, or oysters Rockefeller.
