Food + Music + Leggiero Wine

our motto: la dolce vita: fine food, wonderful wine, great music, and the good things in life.

Every Monday we are sharing our wines (which are named after musical notes) with food and music – in order to convey the emotion and personality of the wine, before you even open the bottle. It’s a ‘Symphony for the Senses’.

The Musical Note: Leggiero: Light and delicate. Minimal. Less is more.

The Wine: Leggiero. An un-oaked Chardonnay done Italian style in the new world. The best Italian Chardonnay hails from the hillsides of cool climate region of Alto Adige. Almost always made in an un-oaked fashion, it is a wine that expresses the pure minerality of Chardonnay with beautiful acidity and crisp fruit flavours. Ours offers up a balance of apple, quince, meyer lemon and keylime pie. The palate is harmonious with a great burst of lemon puff and green apple on the mid-palate that plays into a medium length mineral infused finish.
