VALCANZJRIA takes its name from the production area: Val Canzeria near Chiaramonte Gulfi in central Sicily. It is created from a blend of Chardonnay, Carricante and a little Albanello. The Chardonnay lends the wine its aromatic richness and roundness, allowing it to express organoleptic characteristics as early as the spring following the harvest. Carricante, on the other hand, draw out the acidity, complexity and tartness which evolve over time, as well as help to maintain the freshness and aromatic intensity of the wine for up to two to three years after the vintage. The temperate Mediterranean climate distinguished by wide-ranging temperatures supports a well-balanced wine.
