2016 Favorita "Quattro 20" Langhe Bianco (Terrabianca)
Terrabianca, Favorita "Quattro 20" Langhe Bianco, Piemonte, Italy 2016100% Favorita (Vermentino) HONEYSUCKLE, TART GREEN APPLE PIE, TOASTED WALNUTS Winegrower Giorgio Alpiste names his wines after the parcel of land on which the grapes are grown. In the case of "Quattro 20 (Venti)" (or "four winds") his Favorita vines flourish on the sandy, south-facing slopes of his family's farm in the Piemonte town of Mango, where refracted sunlight from the Ligurian Sea accentuates the grape's natural minerality and slightly sharp acidic finish. This makes it a fantastic wine to pair with rich cheeses and pasta dishes dressed with butter and herbs. Serving Suggestions: Tajarin (hearty egg yolk pasta) with butter, sage, and white truffles, or baked trout with lemon and tarragon.
