Can’t you see their sensuality? Can’t you feel their sinews under your skin? How they find you in your waking thoughts? How they hold you in their thrall? How they take you in your dreams?

They’re like icons of Italian art. Like Sophia, and Marcello, and Claudia. Like the David, and the Mona Lisa, and the Birth of Spring. As mysterious as the rites of the temples of Bacchus, as carnal as the heat of a midsummer day. And like the glory of Italian art, the variety and pleasure of Italian white wine flourishes in every region of the ancient peninsula. From Prié Blanc of the Alpine hills of the Valle d’Aosta to Zibbibo and Albanello of the Mediterranean island of Sicily.

This is a tasting you’ll remember. These are wines that will light your body with fever as they soothe your soul with its cure.
