Fiano MandraRossa my New Favorite Budget White

October 29, 2009

Produced and bottled in Sicily, the 2008 MandraRossa Fiano is a delicious white mandrarossa_fiano_lab_smwine, with a nose reminiscent of the lemon tree orchards that grow on the legendary island. The aromatic nose is decidedly lemony, as is the palate, slightly oily, of a very nice texture indeed. The flavor spectrum includes ripe white peach and a brushstroke of fine herbs.

This wine was a perfect company for a plate of Pasta Vongole. (Click on link for recipe). I have checked out several online recipes but I find that my favorite is the very basic one with just a few ingredients.spaghetti-alle-vongole11

At 15.99, this is wine to pay attention to. The 2007 version won a ‘Great Value White Wine’ gold medal at the International Wine Challenge, considered the world’s largest wine competition.
