Mastroserio 2017 Viani Vineyards Falanghina El Dorado
Italy is known for its crisp white wines; ones that you long to sip poolside; under the dappled sun of a pergola surrounded by potted lemon trees; or while dipping your toes into the soft ebb and flow of white-frothed waves as you stare out at a crystal blue-green ocean. Falanghina is one of these thirst-quenching white wines.
But take that grape and plant it in El Dorado, California, with its generous sunshine, and you bring out juicy peach, guava and passionfruit goodness in the wines as with this delicious sip from Mastroserio.
A big shout out to Stephanie Litty for gifting me this tropical oasis for my birthday.
