Arnaldo Caprai Grecante Grechetto Dei Colli Martani 2006 DOC
Made from 100% Grechetto in Montefalco, the Umbrian region of Italy, this fresh and lively white wine has the coloring of hay. Aged in stainless steel for 3 months, then in bottle for 3 more, it exhibits a bouquet of pressed flowers and soft clean fruity flavors redolent with melon and a very slight slate undertone. Nicely balanced with a refreshing long finish.
Paired extremely well with Asian fusion cuisine, specifically Tom Kha, a Thai soup with chicken, coconut milk, mushrooms, galanga and lime juice followed by sashimi.
