The 2012 Contessa Entellina Chiarandà presents a thick and oaky style that does justice to the creamy Sicilian Chardonnay grapes used here. Chiarandà is endowed with a superior sense of richness that wraps thickly over the palate with intensity and determination. The bouquet reveals dried apricot, honey, peach, exotic fruit and toasted almond. Added complexity comes in the form of dried sage and toasted pine nut. This is a beautiful Sicilian wine that is built to last. It should continue its evolution over the next ten years.
