2015 Allettare Alto Adige Pinot Bianco

Coming from the Northern Italian region of Alto Adige, this Pinot Bianco is an intriguing blend of richness and minerality. A portion of the wine was barrel fermented, with Sur Lie ageing for 4 months, resulting in a wine with a sense of roundness, interwoven with laser-like acidity and minerality. This is a sophisticated wine meant for enjoying with dinner, rather than an aperitif. Complimentary pairings would include fish and lighter seafood dishes.
