Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc 2010
Zesty flavors and aromas of tropical fruit such as kiwi, gooseberry, pineapples and mangos with a hint of grassiness are complemented by creamy citrus notes. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that addes great complexity and depth.
Clear and very pale in the glass. To be expected grassy/green pepper nose. Very light on the palate. Slight grassy notes, some steely notes, some melony notes. Very slight tartness. Very quick finish but a very refreshing wine. $11.59 at Costco.
Smells way better than it tastes. now comes with twist cap, a little disappointed without the cork.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc
Whether you call this wine Fumé Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc after one taste you will love this one delicious wine. Ferrari-Carano makes a dazzling, concentrated Fumé Blanc with a rich, creamy texture, packed with honey and melon flavors. A very well-made and elegant wine.
Peaches and fresh pea flavors embrace the palate in this light-bodied wine. On the finish are echoes of grapefruit and melon. Drink now.
Bright, with a core of grapefruit, lemon and herb. Refreshing, offering hints of fresh-cut hay and a pretty, long finish. Drink now.
Aromas of lime, kiwi, citrus, melon and a touch of grass complemented by flavors of grapefruit, lemon and lime with a mango and guava finish. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds complexity and depth. Made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Smooth, fruity and citrusy, showing some nice orange and cream flavors and a touch of oak; keeps its flavors nicely balanced and elegant.
Here's a bright, crisp Sauvignon Blanc. It's dry and zesty, with pineapple, lime, sweet Meyer lemon, gooseberry and vanilla flavors. Partial aging in old oak adds a softening touch of cream.
Half-fermented in stainless steel, half in older oak, which is a common approach this day. This 100% varietal wine keeps Sauvignonrsquo;s fresh, tart citrus fruit and acids, but adds just a little cream and softness. Itrsquo;s not a complicated wine, but itrsquo;s a refreshing one, with some aspirations to complexity.
