Italian White Wines for Spring
Enotria, the land of vines, was the ancient Greek name for Italy and a very appropriate one at that. Today much of Italian white wine is dominated by a handful of white wine varieties, yet it remains full of local, indigenous varieties that offer subtly different and unique expressions of a time and place.
 
With spring slowly arriving, and summer threatening, we all tend to slowly switch over to drinking more white wines. This season of change is the perfect time to move outside one’s comfort zone and discover the true variety of the world of wines. I’ve gone over a few unusual varieties over the past few weeks and today, ironically, I return to my comfort zone, which includes the regional white wines of Italy. With so much variety, you can spend the entire spring and summer exploring these wines, and I hope these few examples serve to get you started!
