|When to Drink
Imagine dining on the breakwater in Vernazza along the Cinque Terre. You’re eating fresh fish just caught in the briny Mediterranean, enjoying some herby trofie al pesto, and drinking the local vino. This is that vino.
My yearly tradition continues with fresh bottles of the 2016 vintage of Etichetta Grigia (gray label) Vermentino making their air-direct flight from the Lunae cantina to fans patiently awaiting this stunning Ligurian white.
Named after the ancient Etruscan and Roman port of Luni, Bosoni’s Cantine Lunae produces their “Gray Label” bottles from some of their best Vermentino grapes, just outside La Spezia along the Eastern Ligurian coast.
Lunae’s 2016 Vermentino vintage is absolutely delicious and fresh, with vibrant lemon & lime agrumi, wildflower honey, and pleasing wild herbal notes. There’s a pleasant saltiness that goes well with Ligurian food; pair this with grilled or fried fish, stuffed mussels, grilled or lemon marinated anchovies, Cioppino, and anything with pesto.
