A-Mano 2006 Puglia Fiano-Greco, about $12
This just in: A-Mano's new white wine has arrived in Colorado. Put in your case orders now, as this is the wine that will take you all the way through Labor Day. Like the winery's Primitivo — a longtime favorite red in the under-$15 category — the white is fresh, bright and entirely delicious.
Made from grapes indigenous to Puglia in Italy, it feels Mediterranean in its ease, fiano's honeyed flavors wrapping around greco's dry nut notes to find a savory and mouthwatering balance. Pour it alone or with pasta topped with clams, cherry tomatoes and peppery olive oil, and bask in summer's food and wine.
