This lively, light requires drinking in the company of friends. One sip
will satisfy any palate like non other drink. It is favourable with
molluscs, crustaceans and sweet tender fish, either raw or marinated and
delicately cooked. A harmonious relationship between some fish menus and
the vivacity of the Bianchello exists. The tones between pale yellow and
green, the delicate body with a smooth impact verging on dry, and the
definite clean fresh influences, exalt the taste and salty bouquet of live
fish. It is optimal when served with fish that have been slightly brushed
with local extra-virgin olive oil and cooked over embers. It also goes
well with simple dishes of sweet white meats, soups, rice and pasta dishes
