Great Italian White Wines for From Del Posto

Matthew Orawski, the sommelier at Mario Batali's New York restaurant Del Posto, suggests three great white wines.

Pinot Grigio is the archetypal Italian white wine for many American drinkers: light, fresh, citrus-y, easy-drinking. But Italy offers an extraordinary range of whites, three of which Matthew Orawski, the sommelier at Del Posto in Manhattan, suggests for summer drinking. His recommendations also serve as an introduction to the category. He likes Pieropan's La Rocca, a single vineyard wine made from Garganega grapes that are picked very ripe; the de Fermo Launegild Chardonnay; and the Pietracupa Fiano di Avellino.
