This Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of peach and grapefruit. On the palate, the grapefruit continues with the addition of lemon flavors. On the finish, grapefruit continues to dominate giving this wine a citrus and bright profile.
It’s a fun and pretty wine that should do well with chicken, pork, and turkey dishes. If you’re a fan of soft cheeses, this is a wine for you because it balances well with rich foods.

We know you will enjoy Nonna’s version of Pasta with Pesto. It isn’t typical, in that most pesto recipes call for olive oil instead of half & half.
This is another Lanza Family favorite and we hope you and your family will enjoy it as much as we have over the years.
