Getting Cinque Terre wines to the USA is nearly impossible. Until now.

This Cantina Cinque Terre Bianco (how to say it) normale wine is the Co-op's base level wine that Cinque Terre fans know and love. If you've dined at one of the tasty restaurants in Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza or Monterosso, no doubt you've enjoyed a glass or bottle of this tasty white.

This is the first year that I'm able to get this Cinque Terre Bianco into the States. I've flown over enough bottles to share with some lucky fellow Cinque Terre fans.

This Bianco is lighter than the Co-op's Costa da Posa cru wine, with a scent of limoncino and fresh Mediterranean herbs on the nose and plenty of lemon & lime on the palate. The characteristic salty minerality is there, and nice acidity that goes well with the local seafood.

This Cinque Terre DOC white pairs nicely with a fritto misto (fried fish & crustaceans) or a bowl of herby spaghetti alla scarpara. It's also the bomb with pesto dishes.

If you need visual inspiration for why you just have to taste this wine, watch the Cantina's video.

Note: Since this Cinque Terre DOC wine is so hard to get in the US, I'm doling it out 12 bottles max per person. Sharing is caring!
