Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Sicily can be appreciated not only for its red wines, but also for the whites and international varieties offered. Chardonnay is perhaps the one that has the best adaptability among all non-native white grape varieties. In this wine, the varietal notes are brought into the spotlight and the good acidity characteristic of this grape gives it a freshness that also makes it ideal for ageing. Label drawn by Alberta Ferretti.
