Wine Maker Notes
Recanati Winery’s premium white wine label, Special Reserve is the winery’s flagship wine and the best white wine produced from each vintage. Our winemakers choose the finest grapes from the best plots and varieties at their disposal, with the grape varietals and even the vineyard plots selected for these fine wines changing from year-to-year depending on their quality. Recanati Special Reserve White is produced only in unique quality years.This wine is made from a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier grapes from our Upper Galilee’s Manara vineyard. This vineyard is planted at an average elevation of 800 meters above sea level.The cool climate that prevails in this region and the stony, well drained soil create ideal conditions for growing these noble white grape varieties. Flavors and aromas of Peach, White flowers, Passion fruit, butter and almonds, along with the spicy nuances developed during 8 months of ”Sur Lie” barrel ageing in French oak.
