Rivera Bombino Bianco (750ml)
Sebastiano de Corato founded the Azienda Vinicola Rivera in the late 1940s. He saw enormous viticulture potential in Puglia’s Castel Del Monte region and wanted to bring these wines to the attention of the rest of Italy and abroad. Today, the estate is still proudly operated by members of the de Corato family.
Bombino Bianco is a grape native to Southern Italy. This wine has candy-like aromas of butterscotch, jasmine and has an underlying mineral note. This is a wine with good complexity, excellent drinkability and freshness. It’s an easy drinking wine with a broad mouthfeel and ripe fruit flavours.
This wine is excellent and refreshing enough to serve as an aperitif, but I really love to pair it with appetizers or dishes that feature crunchy, green veggies. I especially love this wine paired with one of my favourite easy weekday meals: steamed broccoli mixed with chicken that’s been cooked in a light cream sauce, served over quinoa. The dish is easy and the wine hits all the right notes!
