More about this wine from Sicily, Italy
Chardonnay is a grape people either love or hate. It seems these days there is no one who is half-hearted about it. This is a great expression that will show you what old world Chardonnay can be. Integrated oak that isn't overpowering, nuances of citrus and baking spice but also that of wet gravel. Chardonnay doesn't need to be the bipolar grape that we have cracked it up to be!

Fondo Antico is a family-owned winery spanning multiple generations. The family values protecting the environment and tries to do their part to reduce their carbon footprint by using alternative energy sources and reducing the use of pesticides on the farm. Fondo Antico has won awards for three years in row for diligence of environmental protection.
