Wine Review: This light-yellow colored Chardonnay from Sicily opens with a tropical nose featuring pineapple and papaya. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a gentle Bartlett pear with integrated oak. There are also notes of grilled pineapple, butter, and marzipan. There are hints of green tea and lime zest on the finish. This Chard paired nicely with Lucia’s butternut squash ravioli with a fresh sage and creamy parmesan cheese sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Starting from the richness of its deep clear golden but transparent color one imagines the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crispness in the taste. It is indeed a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful. A slight mineral suggestion combines harmoniously with the flavor of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, cereal, and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish. Try it with a roast veal and mushroom sauce.
