Located in Israel’s Hefer Valley, the Recanati Winery is a showcase winemaking facility, equipped with the most innovative technology available today. Owned by Lenny Recanati, a native of Israel with ancestral roots stretching back to Italy, the winery is the fruit of Lenny’s life-long dream to produce truly world-class wines.

The wine underwent 50% malolactic fermentation and was bottled on May of the following year. Color Pale gold Bouquet Scents of apricot, citrus, tropical fruits with a hint of ginger Taste Medium-bodied and well-balanced, with flavors of tropical and citrus fruit against a backdrop of refreshing acidity.
