Obscure whites are summer's gems/ As far as white wines go, most of us have been exposed to Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Riesling. These "Big Three," as they are often referred to, produce some of the most stunning wines in the world. However, if you're ready to take a walk on the wild side, here are some other fabulous choices. Vermentino di Sardegna (ver-mehn-TEE-noh): You'll find flavors of apple, pear and a mouthwatering minerality that pairs beautifully with summer seafood dishes. Look for Sella & Mosca La Cala Vermentino.

Helles Strohgelb; delikat in der Nase, an reife Äpfel und Bergamotte-Bonbons erinnernd. Rassig und trocken im Gaumen.
/ An informal, easy-to-drink wine with medium aromatic intensity rallied mostly around fragrant fresh fruit, white stone and Mediterranean herbs. The structure is lean and the acidity is bright: You can't ask for more.
Top 60 Italian White Wine Values/ Bright and crisp, with a lemon-lime and almost salty character. Medium-bodied, with lovely acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. You can taste the sea here.
La Cala Vermentino - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ A classic Vermentino with its soaring, perfumed aromatics and crisp, clean fruit.
