Leonardo Recanati's Italian heritage lies at the source of his passion for quality winemaking. Israel's ancient soil and a lengthy growing season provide Recanati with the perfect environment in which to nurture fine white varietals. Grapes for this full-bodied Chardonnay, handpicked from a choice single vineyard in northern Galilee, are soft pressed, vinified and aged "sur lie" in French oak for nine months. Recanati Chardonnay exudes delicate aromas that evolve on the palate into tropical fruit, concluding in a finish that recalls caramel and almonds. Enjoy with a variety of entrees, including fish dishes, pastas and light appetizers.
