Product Code: 248872 $ 13.99
This is a lovely white wine from the pretty little village of Montefiascone in the Lazio region of Italy.
Unusual name has a fun story attached to it.
In the 12th Century a German Bishop named Johann Fugger was to go to Rome for the coronation of Henry V. in order to drink well on his journey he sent out his majordomo to scout out the towns on the way where he could eat and drink well. His job was to mark Est!(short for vinum est bonum) on the door of the inn’s where the wine was good.
When he arrived at Montefiascone the majordomo so like the wine that he marked Est! Est! Est!
Apparently the corpulent bishop agreed with him because when he arrived in the town he like the wine so much he cancelled his trip and stayed in Montefiascone until his death!!
Anyway, this is a fun little white wine made from Trebbiano and Malvasia.
Light, crisp and lively with lemony flavors and juicy acidity.
Get some fresh oysters, whip up a crisp salad and get stuck in with a tumbler of this wine.
