Tenuta Sant'Antonio Scaia Bianco

Tenuta Sant'Antonio Scaia Bianco 2012
Veneto, Italy

Garganega. It just rolls off the tongue, no? Little did you know that it is the 6th most popular Italian grape!

Review: Holy Moley! Did someone order up the tropics? The nose on this white blend is all about the pineapples, mangoes, grapefruits, and acacia blossoms. The wine then explodes on my tongue -- but not the way I thought it would. Instead of the intense pineapples I expected, I found loads of citrus! 

The wine has a lovely light to medium body. The acidity is a little high, giving the wine a delightful zing! Overall, the Scaia Bianco is fresh, fruity, balanced, and refreshing.  

Food Pairing: Perfect with fishes!

Bottom Line: I love the contrast in aromas and taste. Supper yummy.
