2013 Cusumano Sicilia Angimbé

2013 Cusumano Sicilia Angimbé tonight. We have been having a lot of local wines so far, so I wanted to try something slightly different from a different part of Italy but thematically similar and this fit the bill. Pretty yellow color, expressive nose and fruit forward, simple white that (as most Italian wines seem to do) paired well with all our food. In my case a tuna crudo, followed by chicken cacciatore and fruit sorbets in their original shell. This blend of 70% Insolia and the remainder Chardonnay was not profound, but a very fun wine.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
