A UNIQUELY ITALIAN WHITE @ AN EVERYDAY PRICE
There is a movement in Italy to resurrect its indigenous white wines, something which could in time get us off the narrow Chard & Sauv menu of choice. Naturally I’m a fan, and I’ve been promoting these “˜alternative’ wines in my Vintages picks ““ but here’s one in regular LCBOs. Vermentino tastes like all those delicious whites locked in your memory from trips to Mediterranean cafés. A little citrusy, a little yummy, and a whole lot of give-me-more. Moderate alcohol and great drinkability too. The perfect patio white.
