Smooth, rich and full-bodied semi-dry chardonnay with a light fruity overtone; very frsh and crisp. Not too sweet. Great with seafood! I am not a red wine drinker and I have found this wine is substantial enough to enjoy with pretty much every entree.

Sicilia, ItalyRapitala Casali is an intriguing white blend of 70% old-vines Catarratto and 30% Chardonnay from this southern island region of Italy. Tenuta Rapitala is situated in Sicily in the area of Camporeale and comprises 70 acres, of which 28 are vineyard. The vineyards extend over gentle hills at an elevation between 1000-2000 ft, where clay and sand soils combine in an ideal terroir. The Rapitala winery is named for the river that runs through the property. Rapitala Casali is light amber in color with a nose of tropical fruits, sage and floral notes. On the palate it is medium/full in body, fresh and crisp, with rich flavors of apples, peaches and citrus. Nicely balanced and food-friendly, the wine is long and pleasant on the finish. Enjoy Rapitala Casali over the next 3-4 years with baked halibut, scallops, roast chicken, pasta, Asian cuisine and cheese.

Die reintönige Frucht ist bei diesem Rosé der Tenuta Rapitalà allgegenwärtig: von der Nase bis in den lange nachklingenden Abgang. Im intensiven Bouquet entfalten sich neben den fruchtigen Aromen aber auch dezente, subtile blumige Noten und Blütendüfte, die einen vielschichtigen Eindruck hinterlassen. Im Gaumen hält sich die Frucht mit der geschmeidigen Textur die Waage. Das Finale ist fruchtig und für einen Wein aus einer sonnenverwöhnten Weinanbauregion überraschend trocken und gradlinig - ein Qualitätsmerkmal!

88 Points - The Wine Advocate"Is simply terrific. Candied cherries, flowers and sweet spices are some of notes that flow from this generous, soft Sicilian red." -Robert Parker, Jr., publication date: Apr 30 2009

The estatersquo;s 2005 Nuar, an unusual blend of Nero drsquo;Avola and Pinot Noir is remarkably successful. Fragrant aromatics lead to a core of sweet, almost-candied fruit as the wine reveals its delicate, understated personality. This too offers excellent length and lovely balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.

Ruby colour, intense bouquet that announces a strong taste with an immediate and powerful structure. The tannin is present but not exaggerated and the acidity is delicate.

I wouldnrsquo;t usually think that Nero drsquo;Avola and Pinot Noir would work well together in a blend, but the 2006 Nuhar is simply terrific. Candied cherries, flowers and sweet spices are some of the notes that flow from this generous, soft Sicilian red. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2011.

When first poured, this wine is earthy and savory, with tight, gripping tannins. Air brings up a warm, almost cooked cherry flavor. For spaghetti. Best Buy.
