Seek out this wine. Pinot Bianco (Pinot Blanc elsewhere) from the Alto Adige is a wine often forgotten by the masses and hoarded by the wine nerds. This white grape thrives on steep foothill and mountaintop vineyards, where extremes of sun and cold winds temper this explosive white grape into a symphony of floral aroma and complex, layered tropical and stone fruit flavors. For around $20-$25, this one is worth the cash and a nice occasion for enjoying.
