Zuani Vigne Collio Bianco 2012 is such an interesting white wine that can be paired well with either pasta or pizza. I had come across this wine a few times and pretty much like it. The soft touch and lingering fruits seem to play well with packed fruit flavour. Each of the components plays its role wonderfully: singing and harmonious. It is pretty nice at this stage should live easily another 5 years or so.
