We had some friends over for a friday night wine tasting, they said they liked to try new wines and enjoyed Italian, and whites were fine. I needed nothing more to happily bring out my favorite Italian trio, Verdicchio, Vermentino & Vernaccia.
These wines span Italy from the isle of Sardinia, across Tuscany to Le Marche. West to East.
Why these three? Because they are all very balanced, easy to drink and go well with summer food like salads, light cheeses and seafood. I love Vermentino with linguine and white clam sauce. Get some fresh clams, garlic and parsley from the Montclair Farmers' Market and you are on your way to a great meal.
