Rich, fruity, good minerality. A food friendly, sophisticated Chard from Sicily.

Decadent and fabulous. Shame on the trade people that dismiss this because it's well known.

Touch of H2S on opening. Glycerol - still with Grapefruit notes and still with a future. Some stone fruit notes on palate. Oak is totally integrated at 9 years (at that time 66 weeks ago).

Catching up on notes from our trip to Sicily 66 weeks ago. A modern western take on Chardonnay. Fermented in Barriques for 10 months - 50% New and 50% Used. Vanilla Oak aromas. Rich but taut on the Medium + palate.

Rich, buttery, and tropical. Lacks some of the zip I've had from it in past vintages though.

A good wine but a bit to international styled with much oak on top, a wine to pair with food - there are so many other relevant, more interesting and indigenous grape varieties in Sicily - try them !
