Great Value

¾ Pinot Grigio, ¼ Greco (Wine geeks, think Greco di Tufo white wine from Campania, Italy). Massican Gemina is an intense wine, full of palate-tickling acidity and all parts of the lemon (zest, juice, seed, and don’t forget the lemon blossoms!). It’s bright acidity/nervy energy and food-friendly mineral edge is what we’ve come to expect and want from Massican wines.

More Information

Owner/winemaker Dan Petroski launched Massican with the 2009 vintage (and I’m proud to say I was one of the first retailers to carry it when I owned Back Room Wines). The wines, all white, are made in the style of Friuli, northeast Italy. You wouldn’t think this possible from Napa and neighboring grapes. It’s testimony to Dan’s skill and attention that he can produce almost dead ringers. In addition to the Gemina, also try his “Annia” white, Sauvignon Banc and Chardonnay.
