Another wine from our new Italian crush, Danilo Marcucci, who makes this pretty alpine white with 4th generation farmer Matteo Furlani in the hills above Trento in Italy’s Trentino region. It’s a zesty field blend of local grapes from super high-elevation vineyards.  A bit tropical, a bunch of minerality, light and crisp yet a satisfying roundness on the palate, this is an awesome all-purpose daily drinker.  Goes with everything -- and everybody -- and low enough ABV that you can crush a bottle on a Tuesday.
