Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine opens with a nice honeydew melon and peach bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and zesty with slightly elevated acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon-lime with a touch of honeydew melon and minerality mixed in. The finish is dry and its zesty lime notes linger nicely. This is a very nice summer wine. I would pair it with steamed clams and drawn butter at you next clambake. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The premiere release of Ferrari Carano's unique, proprietary, white wine blend — the 2009 Bella Luce, which means "beautiful light" in Italian — is the sister wine to our SIENA and Pinot Grigio. The goal of Bella Luce was to create a fragrant and light white wine blend from varietals that would complement one another in aromas, flavors and texture. Bella Luce accomplishes this with delicious layers of peach, vanilla and floral aromas, and wisps of orange blossom, pear and lime. Distinctive and round on the palate, Bella Luce's flavors of cream, vanilla, citrus, and apple shine through.
