2018 ETTORE Chardonnay Reserve
This chardonnay comes from hand-picked organic grapes that are grown in the loamy soils of Mendocino’s Sanel Valley then aged for 18 months in French Oak Barrels. This has produced a smooth and complex white wine revealing flavors of white fruit and florals. A refined chardonnay for any celebration! I loved it and I think you will also.
The 2018 ETTORE Chardonnay Reserve, a bold yet elegant tasting white with balanced, fruit flavors made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, is the perfect glass to sip while catching up with your family before heading over to the dinner table. Propose a toast to your family and friends for a healthy and happy holiday season and new year with this satiny, ultrarich white wine.
2018 ETTORE Red Wine
Grown in the loamy soils and aged in French Oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, these hand picked grapes have melded together to create a red blend that is peppery, jammy and full of red berries with slight smoky notes with medium tannins. A delicious wine throughout the meal! And the hand-dipped wax tops on all their bottles is a nice touch for gift giving!
If the menu consists of turkey, cranberry and other holiday dinner staples, open a bottle of 2018 ETTORE Red Wine; with its deep red color, fruit flavors and savory, smoky notes, this red blend will pair well with a variety of holiday-centric dishes. After dinner, finish off the bottle of red wine while sharing stories and reminiscing about what a hectic year it has been while just enjoying the company around you.
