Donnafugata Chardonnay Blend Contessa Entellina Chiarandà 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This was a pleasant surprise that I tried. It's a white Sicilian wine that has a great mineral core with very subtle citrus hints. A nice delicate summer sipper that will go great on your deck with a cheese plate. Buy a few at this price! - Maggie's Staff Pick Ansonica, 50%; Catarratto, 50% The wine shows a precise personality linked with extremely sweet and elegant fruity sensations and notes of yellow peaches and plums. On the palate, sapidity and softness unite.

Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and the house accelerated its march along the path of Extreme Quality: a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities Read less
