New from Sicilia: a great new Chardonnay... in sapor di Chablis!
Esce su VinoWire una entusiastica, ed entusiamante, "recensione" al nostro Nakone 2007 (che potrete assaggiare al Vinitaly 2009 - Padiglione Sicilia, stand 18, corridoio B-C) di Tom Hyland:
Now comes the 2007 “Nakone” from the brand new estate of Tenuta di Fessina. This estate is located near Mount Etna and will be specializing in the gorgeous reds from this district, but this first release of Chardonnay is superb! From a vineyard at 600 meters elevation in western Sicily, this is aged only in stainless steel and displays lovely aromas of pear and quince. Medium-full with beautiful texture, precise acidity and light minerality, this is reminiscent of a Premier Cru Chablis. It’s hard to believe this is from Sicilly — what beautiful fruit and what excellent winemaking by Federico Curtaz!
Thank you Tom, I am so pleased that you liked our Chardonnay!
