The Donnafugata Chiarandà 2013 brims with lush fruit and savory notes. This white wine is truly a bottle to remember, with its unique tasting notes and voluptuous texture. A golden yellow color in the glass, the wine shows a complex bouquet of yellow apples, rosemary, vanilla, and white pepper. These delicious aromas complement a palate that is savory and fresh, with an opulent mouthfeel and a long finish. Enjoy this white wine with foods like lobster, cream of vegetable soup, smoked fish, roasted quail, or aged cheeses. Decant thirty minutes before serving.
