Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Straw with light greenish accents. Bouquet: Lively, aromatic bouquet combining mineral scents with classic aromas of green citrus fruit, lime, peach and white melon.

Slightly sweet and rounded, but not too buttery for this fan of crisp finishes.

This tasty white offers apple, citrus fruits and a hint of lychee. Medium-bodied, with a fruity palate and a clean, crisp finish. Drink now.

The 2008 La Segreta Bianco is generous and layered in its ripe apricots and peaches. There is a slightly candied, perfumed quality to the fruit that is quite attractive as this beautifully balanced Sicilian white opens up. La Segreta is 50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier and 10% Fiano.

Pale straw-yellow. Rather inexpressive nose hints at passion fruit and herbs. Then much more intense and explosive on the palate, with lively flavors of peach, passion fruit and herbs. Finishes with average length.

Aromas and flavors of baked apple, with notes of exotic fruit and piecrust. Medium- to full-bodied and very fresh, with a clean, creamy finish. Drink now.

A blend of mainly Sicilian grape varieties. Some Chardonnay is added for weight and body along with Viognier for floral aromatics. Handsomely balanced with appley tropical fruit notes and crisp acidity.

Aromatic and ripe, with zesty lemon curd and grapefruit notes on a waxy yet vibrant frame. Marcona almond hints fill out the minerally finish. Grecanico, Chardonnay, Viognier and Fiano. Drink now.

This unusual blend combines Grecanico, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Fiano into one exciting package. The nose has lovely notes of honeysuckle and lilac in addition to the prominent, crisp citrus and tropical fruits. In the mouth it is unexpectedly rich, oozing orchard fruit flavors with a nice refreshing note of minerality keeping everything taut and lively. This is a great apéritif wine and a lovely choice for simple fish dishes.
