Funaro, “Passo di Luna” Bianco, Terre Siciliane IGT Sicily, Italy 2019 (750mL)


Located about two hours south of Palermo, the Funaro family estate is home to a trove of beautifully cared-for vineyards and olive groves, including plantings of white grapes once used in the production of Marsala: Grillo, Zibbibo, Insolia, and Catarratto. This steely, crisp, floral white combines Insolia and Zibbibo from Certified Organic vineyards and is fermented and aged only in steel tanks to preserve freshness. Hardly just a “quaffer,” however, there’s some nice texture to this 2019, a juicy midpalate with notes of peach, nectarine, white flowers, and a hint of chalk. Refreshing, mineral, and delicious—perfect for pairing with grilled octopus or Sicilian-style tuna with blood oranges, or a winter citrus salad.
