About the Wine
This super white wine produced by Rapitalà originates from Sicilia. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by GIV Grouppo Italiano Vini. Conte Hugues Chardonnay Terre Siciliane is a delicious wine, made from Pecorino grapes. This cork closed wine is made with added-sulphites. Just perfect with chicken, pork, pastry with rich buttery and creamy sauces.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
