Type: White - Chardonnay Contessa Entellina DOP
Alcoholic content: 13-13,5% alc/vol.
Grapes: Chardonnay. Trained in the counter-espalier system and pruned in spurred cordon. Average planting density, 5,000 rootstocks per hectare (2,024 an acre); production of about 6.5 tons per hectare (2.6 tons an acre). Terrain of medium consistency.
Wine-making:The grapes are harvested at night in the second week of August and soft-pressed. After alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures, the wine ages in tanks for several months and at least three months in the bottle before release to the market.
Description: A wine with notable depth of nose and palate. The bouquet opens with lush scents of fruit—pineapple, apple and banana—in an elegant mineral context. Splendid in the mouth, well-balanced and full-bodied.
Food & Wine:A perfect wine for an entire meal, it blends well with crustaceans, elaborate pasta dishes and tuna preparations.
Two dishes: Pasta with sardines or broccoli, tomatoes, raisins and pine nuts. Slices of sea bass perfumed with garlic and onions.
Serve: Slender goblets of good size; uncork at time of serving; excellent at 10-12°C (50-54° F).
Curiosity: Gabriella was thinking of "fleeing" and beginning a new life, passing from the arts to the land. Gabriella is a woman with the wind in her hair who is never at rest. Gabriella invented La Fuga, a label that not only suggests movement but also sunshine and the land. This wine debuted along with the Contessa Entellina DOC in 1994.
