Wine Wednesdays - Mastroberardino White Wine

Greetings from Maine!  I'm enjoying my fair share of lobster, but wanted to pop in to share a wine I enjoyed at a friend's house during one of our last weekends out East.

The 2011 Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco (such a mouthful from those Italians!) was light, refreshing, well structured and perfectly in balance between fruit and acid.  The varietal is Coda di Volpe which is new to me, but I really enjoyed it.  Hailing from the Campania region of Italy, the wine was aged in stainless steel enhancing the mineral qualities inherent from the volcanic soil in which it was grown.  It was perfect for sipping pool-side with a perfectly presented cheese board!

Purchased:  Enjoyed at a friend's home

*I had some trouble finding the 2011 online but newer vintages are available
