Campania, Italy / $17 Retail

click to enlarge wineofweek-1.jpg

This crisp, refreshing medium-boded wine from southern Italy is produced primarily from indigenous white Falanghina grapes. It is one of many lesser-known Italian whites often more interesting than popular Pinot Grigios. It offers aromas of white blossoms, peach, melon and citrus, followed by more stone fruit on the palate, with apricots, almond flavors, tart apple, lemon rind, a touch of honey and a stony minerality. It has great acidity and a long, clean finish. Serve well chilled as an aperitif or with mussels, antipasto, fish, shellfish, roasted vegetables, lemon roasted chicken, pork and a variety of Italian dishes. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle. Drink it at: A Mano, Domenica and Emeril's. — Brenda Maitland
