This wine’s story: It’s no wonder that Italia Ricci, with her family’s Italian roots, gravitated towards a native Italian grape when we tasted with her for this collaboration. Italia is family to us here at Nocking Point Wines and we were so excited to partner with her on this special wine, made in collaboration with our friend Jennifer Reichardt in Northern California! It’s light, easy-drinking and filled with layers of interesting flavors. Lastly, as Italia so eloquently stated on the back label, “It’s like an Amell-bec, but smarter.”
