Nozze d'Oro Contea di Sclafani DOC 2010

For his golden wedding anniversary, or "nozze d’oro" in Italian, founder Count Giuseppe Tasca created an innovative blend of indigenous Inzolia and Sauvignon Tasca. The fresh and lovely profile of Nozze d'Oro was so well-received that he decided to continue its production. The blending percentages now vary but the dedication remains the same: "To my wife Franca, with immense love."

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow in color, Nozze d’Oro offers delicate aromas of apple, peach, melon, jasmine, and honey. On the palate, it is expressive and fruit-forward with good body and alluring flavors.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roasted chicken, velouté sauces, oysters Rockefeller, and savory crèpes.
