“Incrocio. Sounds exotic but means nothing but crossing. And not from two highways, but in this case from two grapes. Result of some experiments in the 1930s. Place of performance: The Italian Ministry of Agriculture. There, Professor Bruni believed that crossing sauvignon blanc and verdicchio could lead to interesting whites.
And damn it; it worked. Dried green apples and mandarin, fresh spice, see-through lime, fine grapefruit bitters and a breath of saltiness. Have another drink, but then watch out when crossing the road.”
