We can all get stuck in the familiarity of grapes that we know. Broaden your horizons. 3 whites & 3 reds.
Starting with the crazies: Bibi Graetz Casamatta Bianco is made as a blend from Vermentino, Trebbiano and a little known, near extinct variety called Ansonica. Fuedi di Gregoria Greco di Tufo is a Southern Italian White that matches racy acidity & texture. Menade Verdejo Ecologico is an organic wine made from Verdejo, a spritzy white grape found only in Rueda Spain.
From Spain, the super-popular Celler del Roure Vermell is made from Mando and aged in clay amphorae, a red wine with the spirit of a white according to the wine maker. Ever heard of Gaglioppo? It's a red grape found in Calabria and Scala Ciro Rosso is one of her most famous expressions. Finishing with the forgotten grape of the North of Italy; Trediberri Dogliani Dolcetto, the ultimate pizza wine! STSWine
