Dalila Feudo Arancio 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

From the union between the Sicilian varietal Grillo and the international Viognier, native to the Rhone valley, comes a harmonious blend that expresses the sunlight and richness of Sicily. This aromatic wine showcases the great oenological potential of Sicily that expresses elegantly fragrant aromas in its white wines. In this wine, Grillo brings intense, exotic tropical notes of mango intermingled with delicate notes of white flowers and stone fruits. Viognier flourishes in Sicily, expressing delicate notes of peach, apricot and citrus with a light hint of wildflowers and fresh honey. Behind these two components, there is a refined oak element with elegant notes of vanilla that respect the nuance of these varietals.

Die Grillo schenkt diesem Wein intensive Noten von Tropenfrüchten wie Mango, zusammen mit Noten weißer Blumen und Früchten. Zum anderen der Viognier, der durch delikate aromatische Noten von Pfirsich, Aprikose und Zitrusfrüchten besticht. Im Geschmack mit einem leichten Hauch von Feldblumen und frischem Honig.
