Donnafugata Chardonnay Blend Contessa Entellina Chiarandà 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay is harvested at night in August and the Ansonica is picked in September. They are vinified separately. The must, obtained by soft pressing, is fermented at controlled temperatures and matured ‘sur lies’ for 5-6 months, half in small cement tanks and half in French oak (barriques and tonneaux of Burgundy). Aged in bottles for at least 24 months before its release to the market

Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata.

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

Tasting Notes:

: A wine with personality and elegance, it combines power and softness. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit, especially apples, and notes of peaches and vanilla fused with peanut butter. The flavour is round and mouth-filling. An imposing structure with a perfect balance of acidity and flavour. Excellent ageing potential
