This is a very successful Insolia-Chardonnay blend that is creamy in the mouth— like a banana smoothie—and nicely layered with peach pie, exotic spice, pineapple and tomato leaf aromas. Imported by Panebianco.
Insolia, a native grape of Sicily, is blended with Chardonnay to produce a creamy, warm-climate white redolent of peach, apricot, melon and golden honey. The wine is smooth in the mouth with fresh flavors of lemon zest on the close.
This blend of Chardonnay (that sees some time in barrique) and Insolia offers deep and sophisticated notes of exotic fruit, chalky mineral and toasted hazelnut. This interesting combination works very well and the wine ends with pretty flavors of spice and almond.
Bidis is a smooth blend of Chardonnay and Insolia from the southern side of Sicily. The 60% Chardonnay component adds depth, balance and stone fruit aromas. The Grillo element grounds the wine in local tradition with fresh notes of wild herbs and fragrant white flowers.
Aged in oak, this blend of Chardonnay and Insolia offers bold aromas of white rose, honey and stone fruit, with a soft, round palate. The creamy finish would pair well with a crab cake or a spicy Thai mango salad.
