C.V.A Canicatti – Aquilae Chardonnay White Wine 2009
COLOUR: straw-coloured yellow with green hues
ON THE NOSE:
initial impressions are those typical of a great wine, as is Chardonnay, alternating clear and distinct varietal aromas, such as acacia, broom and mimosa, fruited nuances which suggest banana, papaya, ripe pineapple, criss-crossed with suggestive memories of orange-blossom flowers
ON THE PALATE:
sumptuous,almost opulent, entirely in proportion to the kaleidoscope of base perfumes, exemplary harmony, enveloping and silky, pleasant beyond your wildest expectations, full bodies and long-lasting, progressive and juicy
Chardonnay could be described as the archetype of the perfect wine, aesthetically outstanding, with soft and charming notes, exceptional to drink. Simply pure nectar which fully expresses its varietal qualities and extraordinary Sicilian terroir
TO EAT WITH:
bucatini pasta with sardines, spaghetti with deep-sea octopus, tagliolini with lobster, cannelloni with fish ragu; excellent with crab, oven-baked sword-fish mini-rolls and sliced dentex fish with herbs.
Gordon’s comment: Golden Topaz color, bouquet with subtle Jasmine, semi dry tastes tangerine, good for sashimi.
