Rivera Marese Bombino Bianco 2019

Puglia, ItalyRivera is one of Puglia’s star producers, with refreshingly affordable wines. This fragrant, showy, yet sophisticated bombino bianco is from the Castel del Monte region, named for the unique eight-sided 13th-century hilltop castle that dominates the countryside. Awash in white flowers, green apple acidity, white grapefruit, barely ripe pear, and melon, with perfect bitterness and tension, this wine slides down so fast the bottle will disappear before the appetizers are served. If you wonder about the fuss with indigenous grape varieties, buy a bottle of this and wonder no more. Back up the truck.Tasted: 20 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
