What Are We Drinking Now? The Piedmont Wine Project

Devin has a cloudy, tart beauty from Italy The Piedmont Wine Project Vino Bianco Meet autumn stoically. Cloudy due to the presence of residual yeast, you'll experience grapefruit aromatics with notes of peach and lychee. The austere acidity, with whispers of newly yellowed grass and hints of Golden Delicious apple, is a fine complement to umami-rich foods, especially soy sauce and sesame oil. Cheerfully mourn the passing of summer and celebrate the harvest season with a fruit-topped sushi roll for a complete experience. Chill, shake, and serve. The Piedmont Wine Project Vino Bianco $12.99/btl
