Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Bella Luce Sonoma County 2010
IFerrari-Carano’s unique, proprietary, white wine blend — the 2010 Bella Luce, which means “beautiful light” in Italian — is the sister wine to our SIENA and Pinot Grigio. The goal of Bella Luce was to create a fragrant and light white wine blend from varieties that would complement one another in aromas, flavors and texture. Individual lots of white wine grape varieties, including Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Semillon, Muscat Giallo, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Blanc, are gently pressed into stainless steel tanks for 48 hours of cold settling, and then racked to stainless steel tanks for a cold fermentation. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation in order to retain its bright flavors and crisp acidity. Bella Luce represents various lots of wine from multiple white varietals, all individually tasted to create the final blend.
