Uniquely Italian White


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.
