Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
A truly “off-dry” style of wine, Dolce Bianco is wonderfully aromatic with notes of raw honey and a strong citrus backbone. A blend of three grapes, all of which possess luscious fruit upfront with cleansing acid to balance, this wine is a fantastic aperitif, a pleasant afternoon sipper, and the perfect accompaniment to all spicy cuisine.
Ever so gently, the spring of 2014 tip-toed in with a very enthusiastic welcome from both grape growers and the vines themselves. The long and harsh winter – both in terms of temperatures and snowfall – reduced the potential crop yields early in the season. With fewer initial clusters, vines were able to deliver a more focused flow of energy and nutrients to the remaining ripening fruit. The Finger Lakes saw spring and summer days with temperatures regularly vacillating from cool to hot with intermittent showers, creating constant shifts and activity in the vineyards as our grapes inched towards maturity. Each hand-harvested vineyard brought fruit to our winemakers that demonstrated playful acidity, promising flavors, and tremendous quality.
