Tasting Notes: Verdiso is a very old variety, revived in recent decades for still wines and some Prosecco and this is a great example of that! This charming, unusual expression of the Verdiso grape, used on its own, creates a refreshingly dry, expressive wine with crisp apple/pear fruit and just a touch of lively effervescence: a very distinctive apéritif.
Wine Making Notes: Verdiso, 11.5% ABV, from Veneto, Italy
Food Pairing: This wine is just stunning. Pair it with light seafood dishes such as a seafood linguine or sea bass. For cheese pairings, keep it Italian, try it with Robiola or Pecorino Dolce. If you want to have a few more options then it also goes great with Wigmore or Baron Bigod.
