    Winemaker Notes

    Intense straw yellow with flashes of brilliant, burnished gold. Good depth on the nose, the bouquet shows Mediterranean aromasof maquis, citrus and exotic fruit. Great finesse. On the palate, the wine is fresh and appealing, with good persistence and flavorintensity.

    Pair with fish antipasti, pasta with vegetables, seafood risotto, fish dishes with sauce and soft cheeses.

    Blend: 60% Inzolia and 40% Catarratto

    Hauner  Winery Image
    In the 1980s, Carlo inaugurated a brand new winery at Lingua, in the commune of Santa Marina Salina, with temperature-controlled equipment, stainless steel vats and tanks, oak barrels and barriques, totaling 1,200 hectoliters in capacity. The Hauner winery acted as a magnet and a catalyst to critics, wine writers, enologists, other growers and the media: Carlo Hauner had triggered a renaissance not only of the islands' most celebrated wine but of the islands themselves, which in due course were inscribed in UNESCO's World Heritage List.

    After the state-of-the-art new winery was implemented, the Hauner range saw several additions. In February 1996, Carlo Hauner, Sr.'s demise did not put an end to the winery's exceptional story thanks to Carlo's dynamic son, Carlo Hauner, Jr., who is flanked by general manager Gianfranco Sabbatino.

    A large, geographically and climatically diverse island, just off the toe of Italy, Sicily has long been recognized for its fortified Marsala wines. But it is also a wonderful source of diverse, high quality red and white wines. Steadily increasing in popularity over the past few decades, Italy’s fourth largest wine-producing region is finally receiving the accolades it deserves and shining in today's global market.

    Though most think of the climate here as simply hot and dry, variations on the sun-drenched island range from cool Mediterranean along the coastlines to more extreme in its inland zones. Of particular note are the various microclimates of Europe's largest volcano, Mount Etna, where vineyards grow on drastically steep hillsides and varying aspects to the Ionian Sea. The more noteworthy red and white wines that come from the volcanic soils of Mount Etna include Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio (reds) and Carricante (whites). All share a racy streak of minerality and, at their best, bear resemblance to their respective red and white Burgundies.

    Nero d’Avola is the most widely planted red variety, and is great either as single varietal bottling or in blends with other indigenous varieites or even with international ones. For example, Nero d'Avola is blended with the lighter and floral, Frappato grape, to create the elegant, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, one of the more traditional and respected wines of the island.

    Grillo and Inzolia, the grapes of Marsala, are also used to produce aromatic, crisp dry whites. Pantelleria, a subtropical island belonging to the province of Sicily, specializes in Moscato di Pantelleria, made from the variety locally known as Zibibbo.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
