Favorite white wine for spring A Vermentino from Liguria, from the Colli di Luni, Cantine Lunae Bosoni, was light and dry with citrus and apple notes as well as floral hints and some minerality. An oenologist friend calls Vermentino a semi-aromatic grape, not quite as aromatic as Moscato or Gewurztraminer but mid-way. I love Vermentino in the spring. Luni is an ancient Roman city near the Magra river. The whole area runs from the Apuan foothills to the Mediterranean and is at the crossroads between Liguria and Tuscany.
