2017 Buglioni "Il Disperato" Bianco Trevenezie
Among our favorite new Italian finds, this hails from the region of Valpolicella. Since it’s a white wine, it doesn’t get called Valpolicella. The 2017 Buglioni “Il Disperato” is a lovely Garganega-based white which is crisp, light and chock-full of fresh, tropical fruits. You may be wondering why the folks at Buglioni decided to call it “The Desperate One.” Well, the story is simple: After making the wine, they couldn’t hit on a good name for it. They began calling it “desperate for a name,” and the nickname stuck. It’s such a perfect match for summer, with its citrusy tang and grassy aromas, you may find yourself “desperate” for more. It is a different white and one I feel you will enjoy. Made with 90% Garganega and 10% Incrocio Manzoni and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
