Wine Maker Notes
Ferrari-Carano’s unique, white wine blend, the Bella Luce, means “beautiful light” in Italian. Bella Luce is a fragrant and light wine with refreshing acidity that is made from varieties that complement one another in aromas, flavors and texture. Bella Luce has delicious layers of Muscat, honeydew, orange, lychee, pineapple, peach and apple, along with lingering cream., vanilla, lemon and a floral finish.
Grapes from select vineyard sites combine to create this aromatic and refreshing wine. Overall, 2012 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines. Spring produced great set and average rainfall lead to normal and above-normal yields. Consistently warm temperatures during the summer months without any heat spikes or major rain events allowed for longer “hang time” leading to fully ripe flavors. The grapes for Bella Luce were harvested from mid-September to mid-October.
Bella Luce is a delicious and refreshing wine that is perfect as an aperitif, or with shellfish, light pasta dishes and light appetizers.
