What people are saying about Amico de Penna
WOW! I love Italian white wine. This one did not disappoint. Paired with the Lemoncello Almonds - yummy and delicious on its own!
One Bottle Is Never Enough
Amico de Penna offers a fresh floral invitation with a subtle beachy ocean aroma to it. Packed with stone fruit citrus, this beautiful Grechetto has a bite that you are sure to savor. Choose light cuisines for this crisp Italian white from tilapia and sword fish to grilled and pan seared chicken. Think lemon. Create an intense palate pleasing duo when teamed up with all your favorite lemony dishes and snacks.
A good white wine
I would describe this one as being slightly floral with citrus notes and a subtle back flavor of green apple. If you like crisp wines. This one is for you.
This is so delicious! Very balanced wine, with citrus notes. It has been amazing with everything I've paired it with from white cheddar, and cheese crackers (Mom's pairs with goldfish and cheese its) to cobb salad or lemon chicken. This is a must-try!
Wow, what a discovery! I love trying a new varietal especially in white AND Italian. This one did not disappoint. I think it could pair with so many foods. And it's a lovely sipper just paired with a glass! I love it with pistachios and shortbread cookies. Tonight I'm pairing it with a lemon garlic shrimp dish and asparagus. Can't wait!
One of my new favorites!
I get extremely excited to bring this perfect blend of fruity flavors with a crisp finish wine to taste at events! Each time it’s paired with either sweet (lemon bundt cake) or savory (jalapeño dip) new flavors make themselves known! This is definitely a favorite and a crowd pleaser at best.
A pleasant surprise!
I am a BIG fan of Italian wines so I knew I would enjoy this one, but I was definitely surprised by it's peach and melon flavors! It's not overly sweet, but a good wine for semi-sweet white drinkers and delicious with jalapeno dip!
If Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio had a baby...
this is what it would taste like! I love Italian whites and this one is incredible! I have never had a Grechetto wine and I'm so happy to have tried a wine made from this grape. This wine has a ton of flavor, is crisp, dry but not oaky or too mineral-y like some Italian whites. And I love the Italian "Pen Pal" themed label. :)
with pad thai MAGIC
perfect with my pad Thai tonight and her spicy Thai chicken wings cut the spice perfectly with this vibrant white grechetto from Umbria
