2018 Bianco "Scaia" (Sant'Antonio, Tenuta)
Tenuta Sant'Antonio, "Scaia" Bianco, Veneto, Italy 201850% Garganega, 30% Chardonnay, Trebbiano Soave 20% PASSIONFRUIT, PINK GRAPEFRUIT, LEMONGRASS Exotic in its perfume and mouth-filling fruit, this intense white is equal parts refreshing cocktail wine and provocative head turner. Between the loving care of the brothers Castagnedi and the unusually fine powdery granite soil (nicknamed "parmigiano" by the locals), an impressively expressive wash of tangy orange citrus and concentrated tropicality has been coaxed from the typically more restrained Garganega and Chardonnay grapes. Serving Suggestion: Filleted flounder pan-sautéed in butter w/ lemon & generous dash of Old Bay. Grilled scallops & quinoa w/ cucumber, tomato, lemon, & mint.
