Italian white wines
You are probably familiar with Pinot Grigio. Other than this grape, what Italian white wines do you know well? The country may be famed for its bold red wines like Chianti, Barolo, and Amarone, but coastal Italy is also home to delicious seafood and crisp white wines to pair. Try a Friulano, which has pear aromas and an almond finish (and which ages quite well), or a Fiano, which is a delicious and bright wine produced in the Southern Italian regions of Campania and Puglia. Fiano’s hints of tropical fruits make it an excellent choice for shrimp and lighter seafood; Friulano is excellent with lightly battered calamari, firm white fish, and lighter, creamy cheeses.
