Made with Grechetto, Malvasia, Garganega, Sauvignon and Chardonnay in equal parts, the 2015 Santa Chiara sees 25 days of skin maceration. The wine opens to a saturated golden color with amber highlights. You definitely smell the waxiness and the power that comes from those grape skins, thanks to layers of honeycomb, sun-dried apricot and candied orange peel. This is a full-bodied white wine that could pair with foods better suited to reds. The finish offers dusty tannins and a touch of bitter astringency.
