Tonight I was invited to a tasting of Ferrari Carano wines – 2012 Fume Blac, 2011 Bella Luce, 2011 Chardonnay, 2010 Siena, and 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Let me first tell you that I prefer dry whites and sweet, full bodied reds when it comes to wine. That being said, I walked away tonight with a bottle of the Fume Blac, the Bella Luce, and the Chardonnay. All three of them are perfect sipping wines….and by sipping I mean walking in the front door and pouring myself a glass as I take off my shoes and turn on the radio every evening.
Here is a little info on my purchases:
2011 Bella Luce, Sonoma County – Their unique, proprietary, 2011 Bella Luce means “beautiful light” in Italian. Individual lots of white wine grape varieties, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Canelli, Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Pinot Blanc and Muscat Giallo. Delicious layers of Muscat, honeydew, orange, lychee, pineapple, peach and apple, along with lingering floral notes, cream and vanilla.
