    "Basilicata is not known for its white wines, so the Re Manfredi 2017 Bianco comes out of left field. The blend here is Müller Thurgau and Traminer. The wine shows floral fragrances, with honeysuckle and yellow rose at the top. Peach and cantaloupe melon aromas also appear at the back. Some 150,000 bottles were made."

    "An easy-drinking, light- to medium-bodied white, featuring lightly tangy acidity and modest flavors of melon, pickled ginger and orange blossom, with a fleshy hint of papaya."
