Albarino, aka Alvarinho or Caino Branco is a popular Spanish varietal that is also grown in Portugal.  Whatever you call it, this is one beautiful wine!  In Europe, Albarino is typically fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve its crisp acidity.  Here at Tre Anelli we are inspired by the Old World methods, but we add a New World twist; our Albarino is aged in neutral French oak barrels.  This adds complexity and richness and balances out the acidity.  This yields a lively wine that is soft and rounded on the palate with well integrated aromas and flavors of lemon curd and white peaches.  This tempting combination makes our Albarino an incredibly versatile food wine.  Pair it with ceviche and grilled pineapple shrimp on the patio.  Kick off your shoes and taste summertime in Spain – without the jetlag! Salud!

Albarino is a native of Northwest Spain but it's becoming more and more common to see it here on the California Central Coast.  It likes the climate just fine, resulting in wines showing, bright, fresh fruit and with a touch of body.  Ours is a bit of a blend, with 80% Albarino, 8% Verdelho (another Spanish varietal), 8% Loureiro (a Portoguese grape), and 4% Sauvignon Blanc.  It is 100% delicious!
