Joe Bastianich’s vineyards have produced this white blend from the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy.
The wine is 45% Chardonnay, 45% Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% Picolit. It spends 50% of its aging in oak and 50% in stainless steel.
For me, Vespa Bianco is a bit too Chardonnay-ish.
On the palate, the wine brings very strong pear flavors with some melon as well. It is extremely fruity, with the hint of sweetness. Just a hint, this is not a sweet wine. ABV is 14%.
It would likely pair well with fish or chicken dishes. Perhaps a pasta cheese dish or risotto.
I prefer crisper, drier whites, and other varietals. If you favor Chardonnays, you will likely enjoy this bottle. It retails for around $30-37.
