Wine Quiz Answer

Answer – #2: Assyrtiko is a dry and unoaked white wine from Santorini, Greece, known for its crisp acidity and citrus notes. Unlike White Rioja and Meursault which have oak flavors, and Vin Santo which is a sweet, luscious wine, Assyrtiko is a refreshing and mineral-driven wine that pairs well with seafood and Mediterranean cuisine.
