I took off last Sunday. I’m sorry. Sommelier David was on vacation (actually here in LA!) and I was just overwhelmed with life. And between the two of us I figured a break was in order. But, Wine of The Week is back!
Before I get down to business, just a quick reminder: as always, the wine is linked to a place you can purchase it from online. If that doesn’t work for you, check out wine-searcher.com for some more options.
Now down to business with the Wine Of The Week! David’s pick is the Firriato Etna Bianco 2010. This white wine is made from Carricante and Catarratto grapes. David describes the flavor as “a little smoke and melon.” And if you’ve ever had prosciutto with melon, you know that is a good thing! The bottle runs about $22.
