" It is only natural that Lumassina, a rare grape exclusive to the Ligurian coast, should be served with another specialty of the region: crisp, lightly battered fried anchovies—supplemented, if you so wish, with calamari, little shrimp, thinly sliced fennel, and sage leaves (all deep-fried, naturally). The Lumassina, a gently flowery, low-alcohol white that presents a barely noticeable spritz, brings a lemony springtime freshness, allowing it to act almost as a condiment to the fritto. In Liguria, your fritto must be of such quality that a squeeze of lemon not only is unnecessary but would detract from the inherent purity of the raw ingredients. My suggestion: squeeze not; opt for a cold glass of Lumassina instead."
