There was one bright spot to my sketchy Monday, a wonderful Insolia produced by Feudo Principi di Butera, a sample from Zonin.
The color of golden straw evokes images of sunny summer days and warm breezy evenings. Aromas of mango and almond intermingle with flavors of pineapple, peach and more mango. A slight effervescence hits mid palate, the finish is well balanced and delectable. Would make a great pairing to barbecue pork sandwiches, ribs or grilled chicken. A truly wonderful summer wine. SRP $13.99
Feudo Principi di Butera is located in the heart of
and once belonged
to noble dynasties. The Insolia/Inzolia grape is grown primarily in Sicily Sicily although it can also be found in under the synonym Ansonica. Insolia
may sound unfamiliar to you but if you’ve tasted Chicken Marsala or Tuscany wines, you have
been introduced to and hopefully enjoyed the Insolia varietal. The grape along
with Grillo and Cartarratto are the three varietals used to produce the fortified
wine known as Marsala Marsala wine.
Looks like we may finally get some much needed rain, skies are darkening, rumble of thunder in the distance and the wind is blowing through the trees. I sure hope it does make it here so all the vegetation can let out a collective sigh of aaahhh.
