Pharus Ninfa Ripani Offida Passerina 2010
"The wine brings whatever food it is paired with vividly to life, and revels in the company of fresh grilled seafood, veal saltimbocca or braised pork with sage and caramelized cipollini onions."
"Another fantastic, first-time-in-the-country wine from Italy. The grape is Passerina from the Marche region. The wine boasts aromas of wild flowers, citrus , melon and minerals. The palate is crisp, but focused on pear and apple with lemon oil with hints of stone. If you want to try a cross between Arneis and Gavi, Passerina is it. Enjoy!"
