Happy Wine Wednesday! This bold and crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Italy makes one dream of sunshine and long summer afternoons spent under the trees. Come dream with me!
Torre di Luna is located in the province of Trentino surrounded by the Dolomites and Rhaetian Alps in Northern Italy. While Pinot Grigio is the oft-favored Italian white wine, the demand for more whites has caused growers to branch out into other popular varietals like Sauvignon Blanc.
This 2012 is quite enjoyable offering bright and lively acidity and summery citrus notes of lemon, lime and grapefruit. This is a tart and bold Sauvignon Blanc that is ready to drink now. It is a delightfully fresh white that would pair nicely with seafood and salads. It’s a bit stronger than New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs so if you like a bold wine, this is for you.
Torre di Luna is widely distributed throughout the United States so check your local wine shop or grocery store. It’s priced quite moderately around $12 to enjoy everyday, as you should. Enjoy!
