Wine of the Week: Anselmi San Vincenzo 2012

Wine of the Week - Anselmi

Anselmi San Vincenzo from the Veneto is a real crowd pleaser as well as a perfect summer wine. I have had this wine made from 80% Garganega, 10% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon Blanc as an aperitivo, with Sushi, with Lobster and with swordfish. I can also imagine pairing it with a light pasta, chicken or even a lovely Caprese salad of tomatoes and mozzarella.

Anselmi is imported by Palm Bay and thus very widely distributed in the US. It’s also very nicely priced. I found it for $10-$12 in NY and NJ. Made in all steel tanks, it is never racked and spends three months in the bottle. I found the acidity refreshing, fresh fruit flavors enticing and nutty undertones delicious indeed.

I brought this wine to Cape Cod to share with my family members, all of whom have different palates and I must say, everyone had a smile on their face both the first and second day that we tried it.

The youngest member on our trip, my nephew Lukas made his own special drink, his award-winning lemonade.
