Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine is a very interesting blend of white grapes. It opens with a fragrant peach bouquet with a hint of ale and melon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and crisp. The flavor profile is a tart green apple with notes of minerality and peach. There is also a touch of green melon. The finish is semi-dry and its peach notes linger on for quite some time. This wine was well received and would pair well shrimp scampi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano's unique, proprietary, white wine blend — the 2010 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 varieties that would complement one another in aromas, flavors and texture. Bella Luce accomplishes this with delicious layers of honeydew, citrus, lychee, peach, and apple, along with wisps of floral notes, Muscat, pineapple, cream, and vanilla.
