“Lunae Bosoni, the largest winery in Liguria, shows that big can be beautiful. They make an exquisite- ly consistent line-up of Vermentino. Scents of wild herbs and spice leap from the glass of this one, their so-called entry level wine. Its clean and cutting na- ture enlivens the palate.A subtle touch of white pep- per-like spice in the finish enhances its appeal. It’s a fantastic choice for summertime seafood, such as linguine bathed in a clam sauce.”
