Fact: This is the week no one knows what to do with themselves. Is it Wednesday or Friday. So what else is there to do? Party. Drink. Enjoy.
Another Fact: I love Italy. I have a special place for it in my heart ever since visiting my brother during his semesters abroad. Great Italian wine in every meal.
Pomino Chardonnay 2016
A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco fresh and pure with a good level of sugar without the loss of acidity. On the palate, look for notes of lemon, frangipani, jasmine, and sweet white peaches. Pomino is a fine wine for aperitifs or to pair with vegetarian antipasti, or large fish, such as salmon. This wine is produced in the enchanting Castello di Pomino, that sits on the Apennines Mountains, east of Florence.
Insolia Principi di Butera 2015
Insolia is a variety that mainly grows in Sicily, although it can also be found in Tuscany under the name of Ansonica, and has been historically used in the making of Marsala wine.
Insolia Principi di Butera 2015 has a lemon, grapefruit, and tropical fruit flavors with hints of almond. With refreshing minerality, the Insolia pairs well with a rich meal, while its viscosity counteracts its acidity, resulting in a well-balanced and spry wine.
Enjoy these libations responsibly, Beauties!
