TASCA D'ALMERITA - CHARDONNAY - 2017
- Product Weight
- 1.3 kg
The 2017 Sicilia Chardonnay Vigna San Francesco Tenuta Regaleali (with 40,000 bottles made) is rich with candied orange and pistachio cream. This is a full-bodied white with pretty accents of Sicilian wide-leaf oregano and rosemary that give extra lift and energy to the bouquet. Compared to the other full-bodied Chardonnays from Sicily (samples from Planeta and Tenuta Rapitalà were in this same flight), this wine is slightly more defined by citrus and mountain herbs. It is less overtly opulent. The quality is excellent across the board on all these wines, but each boasts a distinct personality.
