Wine with Me |

Planeta 2011 Chardonnay, retails for $40
Much different from chardonnay from California and France. Notes of Citrus and tropical fruit with good acidity. You feel the Sicilian sun and heat in this wine , the use of wood is shy but balanced. Great with a fatty fish, poultry or pork.

Terre Nere Calderara Sottana 2006, retails for $80
Single vineyard from Mt Etna. 40-50 year old vines. quite Burgundian. A classy elegent wine one of the best from the region.

Firriato Cavanera Rovo Delle Coturnie 2009, retails for $32
Layered with dark cherries and volcanic smoke licorice and tobacco. The fruit, oak and tannins are all in balance.
