Le Marche Wines in Canada: De Angelis Prato Grande Chardonnay 2013See on Scoop.it - Wines and People
I am frequently asked from where in the world are the best wine values coming. Invariably, my response includes the Italian region of Marche, and this wine is a perfect example of why. Unoaked and fresh with notes of citrus, mineral, tropical fruit and hazelnuts with a lovely texture and refreshing acidity on the lifted finish. The winery’s vineyards are organicly farmed, but according to owner Quinto Fausti, they do not have certification because they don’t need a piece of paper to validate their beliefs. A great match with seafood and poultry. Killer value!
