This Chardonnay cannot shun the praise
bestowed on it for being first Sicilian,
then Chardonnay. The bright white that is the color
of its origins, the root of every eventuality,
every evolution, the primal purity,
the sum total of every color, the chalk soil
of Cristo di Campobello.
Grapes harvested between the second

“Fragrant, with aromas of citrus fruits
and flowers and hints of butter, mango
and yellow plum on a vanilla-tinged base.
Soft and full, well defined by freshness
and enhanced flavors, in perfect harmony
and with a long-lasting finish. This wine can
be cellared for at least 3 – 5 years.”
