Lightly spiced, with hints of white pepper and pine framing the melon rind and citrus zest notes. A hint of cream rounds out the finish. Drink now.

My new favorite wine region this summer has been southern Italy, especially for its bright, aromatic whites such as the Donnachiara Fiano. Lots of pear, melon and toasted hazelnut notes, with just a hint of pumpkin. Awesome enough simply chilled on its own, this is also one to keep in mind for Thanksgiving.

100% Fiano with a straw yellow color with a light green touch. Possesses a delicate bouquet that elegantly combines hints of dried fruit and floral and tropical fruit notes.
