Franchetti–Passopisciaro 2020 Contrada PC Chardonnay (Terre Siciliane)

The nose of this Passopisciaro Sicilian cru Chardonnay impresses immediately with a sophisticated integration of savory notes against solid but reserved fruit, moving from toasted wood and rain-soaked pavement to lemon, quince and kumquat. Green and yellow apple seem to be almost baked into a pie on the palate, with lychee and other tropical flavors that may have already peeked out on the nose but are now less timid alongside pineapple and star fruit. A squeeze of acid down the middle and a bitter nuttiness at the finish tie everything together in a neat package. Danielle Callegari
