White wine is made without the skin of the grape and produced through a method called alcohol fermentation. Also, the majority of white wines are lighter and have a crisper, more citrusy flavor compared to red.
It’s best to serve white wine in glasses with a larger bowl so that bold aromas and flavors emerge as they mingle with oxygen in the air. Many wine glass manufacturers have added a hint of green or blue feet to wine glasses as it flatters white wine and helps emphasize the separation between the glass and wine. Traditionally speaking, white wines are served before reds, while younger wines should be served before older vintages.
In addition, due to white wine’s aroma, acidity and ability to soften meat and deglaze cooking juices, white wines are often used in cooking. Sweet wine goes well with sweet and savory dishes to mitigate the heavy sugar and stimulate the fruitiness.
If you’re a sparkling wine lover at mealtime, you’re in luck, it can be taken any time during the meal because of its diversity. By choosing a sparkling wine, it allows the retention of the same wine from the beginning to the end of the meal.
Making it a must have in any household!
The Muscat grape is one of the oldest grape classes known. It’s not a simple grape, Muscat is a group of grapes that range in colors from white to brown and nearly black. This flowery aromatic like grape closely resembles the smell and taste of Muscat table grapes.
Muscat Blanc et Petits Grains is known to probably be the best variety of Muscat grapes. Mainly because these grapes can be made into wines of extremely varying styles, from light, semi-sweet, low alcohol fizzy wine in Asti in North-West Italy; to dry, fragrant whites in Alsace, the Italian Alps, South Africa and elsewhere.
Then, it can be very sweet, often fortified, Muscats in hot climates where the Muscat grapes can become extremely ripe would be Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise as an example.
Italy has adopted a rigorously controlled appellation system that has strict controls on regulations governing vineyard quality, yields per acre, and aging practices just to name a few. There is over three hundred DOC (Denominazioni di Origine Controllata) and DOCG (Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita) wines today.
There are over five hundred classifications IGT (Indicazioni Geografica Tipica) wines are factored in too. Depending on the region of Italy, you’ll have a better idea of what types of wine are produced.
In the North, the Italian Alps lay against long expanses of the Po River plains. Tiny pockets and microclimates along the mountains link to their very own special wine. It always seems to be a fight between nature and wine, but wine continues to win as it has an extraordinary ability to age.
Central Italy delivers many more exciting wines such as Sagrantino from the Umbrian town of Montefalco, dense and dark Montepulciano from Abruzzo, and white Verdicchio from Le Marche.
Southern Italy, specifically Sicily has native grapes like Nero d’Avola (red) and Grillo (white). Grillo is used for producing fortified wine, Marsala. Sicily has a relaxed regulation with an increased experimentation which makes it the “new world” wine region, while perfectly locked within the confines of an “old world” wine reality.
