What’s Anthony been drinking lately?
Mastroberardino Nova Serra Greco di Tufo 2017
This creamy, elegant white wine is light to medium-bodied and leads with a waft of almond blossom that carries to baked nectarine, stony mineral, ground ginger, and honey flavors on the palate. A perfect pairing for any seafood dish or sitting on the porch staring at your neighbors across the way.
Hartford Court Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2018
I crushed this Chardonnay while FaceTiming with my friends. We all agreed that it offers subtle aromas of jasmine flower, citrus oil, green apple and pear. The elegant aromatics are complemented by fresh kiwi, lemon drop and Pippin apple flavors. The fruit-focused mid-palate is followed by subtle mineral notes and a hint of crystallized ginger in the finish. Quarantine has never seen a chardonnay like this before.
Massican Annia Napa Valley White Blend 2017
A complex and inviting white, showing intricate nuances of roasted almond, matcha, honeysuckle and orange zest, mingling with supple, juicy Asian pear, tangerine and ripe melon notes. The smooth texture and a thread of acidity add to the appeal. Ribolla Gialla, Tocai Friulano and Chardonnay. Watch out! You’re going to be the hit of your front yard barbecue with this wine!
Trimbach Riesling Alsace 2017
A sleek, minerally white, with well-cut acidity defining flavors of white peach, pine and preserved lemon, showing a rich hint of passion fruit coulis. Fine and creamy, offering a lasting finish. Makes me want to be quarantined in Alsace with plateful of sweetbreads.
