Ca' Momi Chardonnay 2012
Ca' Momi Chardonnay is a rich, golden, luscious wine with full-bodied aromas and flavors that match its opulent color. It has complex flavors of yellow apple, pineapple, tropical fruit, citrus, pear, and vanilla. It has smoky notes from oak aging along with ripe apricot, baking spices, butterscotch, and caramel on the long finish. The first impression on the palate is of a ripe, smooth, rich white wine. It develops into a fruit-filled, full-bodied impression; elegant from the balanced acidity on the lingering finish.
Ca' Momi, Italian for "House of Momi," is their family home in Italy. It was named for local legend Momi dea Bionda and his obsession with the house and vineyards, back when he called it home. Momi's protective spirit is still watching over their property in California, and their wines are a celebration of his passions and his quest for the simple pleasure of life—enjoy!
