Winemaker's Notes

Color: Golden yellow with a bright greenish hue

Bouquet: Rich, intense and fruity. Scents of peach mousse, black figs, rose and vanilla cream mingle with overtones of hazelnut and orange blossom honey

Taste: Soft, round and concentrated on the palate. The fruit flavors are wonderfully balanced by a powerful streak of acidity and rich mineral character

Serving Suggestions: An outstanding match for ravioli with fish and lemon sauce, handmade pasta with truffles, and grilled meats. After some years of bottle aging, enjoyable with mature cheeses

For those who don't know much about Italian chardonnays, this one is delicious. It's very buttery and much like an Alexander Valley chardonnay. I highly recommend it as they sell it for over $100 in restaurants. Hence, at approx $30, it's a super price and has a fabulously delectable taste.

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
