JS 93 WE 91 WA 90 WS 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - "Wonderful cooked apples to this white, and a light toffee and vanilla bean character. Full body with a rich and wonderful palate of dried tropical fruits and hints of apricots. A full and wild style. Drink now."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "There’s a reason why this finessed bottling is one of Sicily’s most iconic whites. It doles out juicy yellow apple, mature pear, white grapefruit, yellow peach and tropical fruit accented by notes of vanilla and hazelnut, with fresh acidity. Subtle oak adds complexity and structure."
According to Wine Advocate - "Executed in an opulent and international style, the 2011 Chardonnay is a landmark Sicilian white. Starting with the 2012 vintage, it will carry the “Sicilia DOC” appellation. You feel the warm Sicilian sunshine in the thick texture of the wine as well as the aromas of ripe peach, lemon drop candy and toasted almond. It offers a beautiful smoky aftertaste with elegant touches of chopped herb, honey and sage. Drink 2015-2020."
According to Wine Spectator - "A vibrant white, with rich notes of toasted hazelnut, pear pastry, smoke and vanilla. A backbone of sleek, mouthwatering acidity drives through to the lingering finish. Drink now through 2019." 13.5% ABV.
