Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Aromas of lime, kiwi, citrus, melon and a touch of grass are complemented by flavors of grapefruit, lemon, mango, and guava in Ferrari-Carano’s 2010 Fumé Blanc. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds complexity and depth.

    (2006 Vintage) This attractive Fume exhibits a nicely proportioned blend of figs, melons and fresh grasses, and seasons that mix with a touch of sweet oak. Medium-full-bodied and slightly fleshy in feel, it has a little more "juiciness" about it than a good many of the wines in this month's pool of contenders, and, even if a touch tangy right at the end, it is a solid success whose acidy snap makes it a good foil to creamy sauces.
