    Colli di Lapio

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, White Meat


    Considered by many to be the best Fiano producer, Colli di Lapio's 2017 Fiano di Avellino is pale straw-green. Wild, minty aromas of fresh apricot, green apple and botanical herbs, complicated by a hint of lemon verbena. Then honeyed and flinty flavors of minty apple and spicy stone fruit. A powerful and penetrating wine that finishes long and with rising complexity.

    Tre Bicchieri Gambero Rosso for 10 of the last 13 vintages including the last 4 vintages. 

    "Wonderful fiano with sliced melon and hints of lemon rind. Hot stones, too. Full-bodied, layered and extremely flavorful with so much fruit and character. Gorgeous."

    Benito Ferrara

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, White Meat


    Bright straw yellow. Hints of custard cream, lime, marzipan, and aromatic herbs on the enticing, surprisingly forward nose. Rich, dense and ripe, offering almost sweet flavors of ripe tropical and citrus fruit. This is multilayered and complex, with juicy acidity providing lift and noteworthy length. The finish showcases a discreet mineral tang. 

    "Benito Ferrara is one of Italy’s best white wine producers. Ferrara’s most famous wine, the Greco di Tufo Vigna Cicogna, is an Italian icon.

    Benito Ferrara’s Greco di Tufo Vigna Cicogna is perhaps the most elegant Greco di Tufo wine made in Italy today. Though it has the tannic power typical of Greco wines, it has a light on its feet quality, a dainty minerality and a lemony freshness that are not commonly found in other Greco di Tufo wines." - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media

At WineOnline.ca we absolutely love white wine. White grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Verdejo, Riesling, Garganega etc, (there are 1000’s more), produce roughly the same quantity of grapes as their red counterparts, but for reasons unknown, many people believe a good white wine should cost less than a quality bottle of red wine. A quality white wine typically takes as much time and energy to produce as a quality red wine. Neither must be expensive, but to expect more quality from a popular white wine for less money than a red, does not make sense.

Of course, white wines can be all over the map. There is sweet white wine, the most famous of which is, of course, Sauternes which is produced in Bordeaux. Sauternes is produced from the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, though you will never see Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon written on the label. Chateau Yquem would be the most recognizable name/producer in Sauternes, and of course, the most expensive of the Sauternes producers. The Hungarian version of iconic sweet wine, is Tokaj, which is perhaps not quite as famous, but equally delicious. There are dry white wines which are produced all over the world, but many would suggest the best dry white wine is produced in Burgundy, with the most popular white wine produced in Burgundian churning out Montrachet or derivatives of Montrachet, such as Batard Monthrachet, or Bievenue Batard Montrachet. All of the white wine in Burgundy is produced from the Chardonnay grape, though once again, you will rarely, if ever, see Chardonnay written on the label. If you are looking for a different style of Chardonnay, perhaps something oakier, you may want to consider finding great white wine types in different areas of California. Napa Chardonnay, or Chardonnay from Santa Barbara are a couple of the more famous areas for production. If you are looking for the best white wine, you might consider looking in Spain, Portugal, Italy or even South America. There are countless good white wine produced in the Mediterranean countries where they often consume more white wine than red. I believe there are a number of reasons for this. 1st of all, it is typically very warm and people want to drink something cool and refreshing, 2nd, there is a lot of fishing and it is hard to argue that white wine does not go better with fish than red wine.

Some white wine lovers might suggest the best Sauvignon Blanc comes from New Zealand, my personal favourite regions for Sauvignon Blanc production are Sancerre and even those from Southern Austria and Slovenia. I must impress on you that I am of the opinion that best is always in the eye of taste buds of the wine drinker. There is no right or wrong, and only opinion. Whether you like bold white wines, or elegant light white wines, sweet white wine, or dry, at WineOnline.ca we scour the world to ensure you are drinking the best, and the best value white wines there are anywhere.
