Homemade sushi with a 2018 rare white blend from Cantina Terlano-Kellerei 🥂🍣🇮🇹
A medium golden color fills the glass as I pour this wine from Alto Adige, Italy. The tropical fruit aromas of pears and peaches on the nose are blended with honey, citrus, and mineral notes. Light to medium body with a long finish.
It is a refreshing wine with well balanced acidity. We paired it with our homemade tuna and salmon rolls. A delicious pairing for a Saturday night!

Smoky pear, yellow apples, fresh cut hay on a verdant farm the day after a rain. Lemon croissant with a brush of glazed sugar, lemon zest, chive, and satin petals of azalea outline the perfume. There is a freshness of clean, laundered, sun-dried whites. Medium mouthfeel with distinct white pepper, extra virgin oil, tart apple, lemon essences, peach skin, culminating in a silky dryness, full of tangerine and kumquat piths. Serve with substantive fare, and spiciness. It has the unction! #oltrepopavese #giorgi #CannetoPavese #bianco #Riesling #rieslingfix #italianwines #italianwhite #italianwhitewine — 5 years ago
Perfect intensity and concentrated color from rim to rim. Smells of bright, ripe green pear, but baked pie apples, grilled grapefruit wheel; mandarins. Lime-lemon, chamomile, briny oyster liqueur, chive, and sweet and sour. Amazing Molise falanghina with depth for a song. .

This Greco from Campania, is believed to have originated in Greece and brought to southern Italy along with a number of other Greek grape varieties when the Greeks dominated that part of Italy. Very mineral, with stone fruit and citrus. Balanced acidity give this wine a lovely refreshing and juicy finish. Great with seafood.

An Italian night with another Total Wine holiday purchase. The Vernaccia grape is a classic Italian white grape that, while it's popularity has waned, has seen a resurgence in drinkability lately. Vernaccia grown in San Gimignano, situated on lush hillside in Tuscany, was the first Italian wine to receive DOC status and eventually DOCG in 1993. The Vernaccia wine is typically dry, acidic, and slightly bitter. ~$15 | #totalwine #vernaccia #italianwhitewine
On the eyes: Light translucent straw yellow, starbright, no stain, light legs.
On the nose: Meyer lemon rind with hints of hay and bitter root vegetable. Med- alcohol.
On the tongue: Med acid, med- tannin, med- alcohol. Unripe lemon wrapped in a light herbaceous blanket with hints of oak yielding to a slightly bitter mineralty. Low complexity but the price point makes it worth it. — 7 years ago
