  • IMHO, SB doesn't do well with substantial tomato presence, though it does just fine with mussels steamed in seawater or a white wine broth. The basil and fennel will also browbeat the poor SB. Think southern Europe, not northern. You need both a substantial acidity and a more robust flavor profile from the grape.How do you purchase your wines, l... Read More
