Perazzeta, Sara Bianco I.G.T.
(SAH-ra BYAN-koh)

 

Tasting Notes: If there is such thing as a SuperTuscan white wine, Sara Bianco, Alessandro Bocci’s counterpart to the wildly successful Sara Rosso Toscano would certainly qualify. Made from a fascinating blend of two classic Toscano varietals: Trebbiano and Malvasia Bianca, and two classic French varietals: Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc; each of the four wines are vinified separately, then blended slowly to test their integration at each step. Graced with aromas of lemon zest, sage, a touch of mango, and dried pineapple, Sara Bianco delivers a delightfully heady complexity.
