Wine Find: 2011 Pacagetto Vernaccia di San Gimignano

From: Tuscany, Italy

Price: $14

Serve with: Clams, oysters

This complex but moderately priced Italian white wine shows the distinctly nutty character of vernaccia, with a strong underlying flavor of minerals. Fruit flavors don't predominate in this severely dry but satisfying wine, but they are present: citrus, pear and a hint of coconut. This is another fine selection from Angelini Wines — an importer to watch.
