87pointsTenuta Rapitalà 2003 Casalj White (Sicilia)

Best Buy

Always a bit funky and unusual, this blend of 70% Catarrotto, a native Sicilian white grape, and 30% Chardonnay is mildly viscous but still quite fresh. It offers a medium-weight mouthfeel and a good amount of apple-driven flavor. Not hugely complex, but works as an apéritif or with fettucine Alfredo, baked salmon or grilled veggies. And as reliably out of the mainstream as it is, it's also a perennial value. Give it a shot; there's nothing not to like about it. Michael Schachner
