2009 Venica & Venica Collio Sauvignon Blanc " Ronco delle Mele"

A single sip of this stunning Sauvignon Blanc from northeastern Italy immediately gets your attention. The 2009 Venica & Venica "Ronco delle Mele" is one intense mouthful, ripe yet fresh, with an overlay of citrus and flowers and a lingering finish.

At the holiday table, it makes a great alternative to Chardonnay, and it's a wonderful foil for chilled shellfish, lobster or spicy Thai or Szechuan dishes.
