Country: Italy, Sicilia
Tasting Notes: In 1985 Lucio Tasca d’Almerita decided to attempt matching the world’s most celebrated white wine variety. After experimenting with vine cuttings brought directly from Burgundy, he planted 5 hectares with Chardonnay on the inferior part of the San Francesco hill, at about 500 meters above sea level, where the land originated form fluvial sediments, which is ideal for white wine grapes. It is able to combine the savory and fresh aspect with good structural balance.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
