Winemaker's Notes:

With its delicate aromas and delicious flavors, our 2009 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio is a perfect, light, white wine for sipping or as an aperitif. Sister wine to the popular Ferrari-Carano Sangiovese-blend, red wine SIENA, our Pinot Grigio has citrus, honeysuckle, peach, and green apple aromas complemented by clean, crisp melon and lime flavors with a touch of creaminess. The refreshing yet round mouthfeel is balanced by a finish that is delicate and vibrant.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

With its delicate aromas and delicious flavors, our Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio is a perfect white wine for spring and summer sipping. The newly-labeled Pinot Grigio, sister wine to the Ferrari-Carano Siena, offers inviting creamy pear, key lime, subtle vanilla and green apples on the nose, complemented by honeydew melon, citrus and a hint of peaches on tasting. The pleasant mouthfeel is balanced by a light citrus finish that is delicate yet vibrant.

Bella Luce accomplishes this with delicious layers of peach, vanilla and floral aromas, and wisps of orange blossom, pear and lime. Distinctive and round on the palate, Bella Luces flavors of cream, vanilla, citrus, and apple shine through.
