Vini Franchetti 2020 Passobianco Chardonnay

$ 4499

 Passobianco is made of 100% Chardonnay. When Franchetti arrived on Mt. Etna, he planted 4 hectares of the grape on steep terraces between 850 and 1,000 meters /2,600 and 3,300 feet above sea level in Contrada Guardiola, in very loose,  deep, powder like lava that is rich in minerals. We began making this wine in 2007, and it is formerly known as Guardiola bianco.

Notes of reduction immediately delight on the nose of this Sicilian Chardonnay, like little bouncy balls from a machine springing off of vanilla, honeysuckle, toasted nuts, lime and grapefruit. An expansive palate unveils more mixed citrus, both fresh and dried pineapple, green and yellow apple and pear that’s just underripe. Buttered sourdough bread on the back palate is expertly contrasted by a tingly spine of acid to ensure balance.
