Pelassa Mario's Bianco, 2015

Pelassa wines are brought into this country by Peloton Imports, but the bicycle on the label commemorates the bike Mario used to deliver wines to his neighbors in the Piedmont area of Italy. Yes, some of those wines had Barolo and Barbera labels, but this delightful white wine is a blend of Arneis, Favorita and Chardonnay.

Medium straw color. Intense aroma of apricot, lime, fresh flowers and a hint of almonds. Rich flavors framed by zingy acidity. Pleasant touch of bitterness on the mid-palate and a citric finish. A versatile wine that goes well with mushroom/spinach/lemon pasta.
