Controvento Vento d'Estate Bianco 2021

Vincenzo de Meo, also called Enzo, makes jewel-toned natural wines in Abruzzo, on the Adriatic coast of Italy. The Vento D’ Estate is made of 100% Passerina grapes, which is part of what makes Enzo’s bottling so interesting; Abruzzo doesn’t often stray from its core varieties, Montepulciano and Trebbiano. Passerina is a white grape that’s been attracting more attention recently, but that can still qualify as a hidden gem.
