Do you enjoy a nice glass of white wine? Cantina Di Soave has some very fine wines that are delicious. I was sent a box of Durello Chardonnay to review. This is a great white wine for dinner parties or just relaxing with friends and family. There are four different types of Duca wines that come in boxes.

Garganega / Pinot Grigio
Duca Garganega / Pinot Grigio blend is an enjoyable crisp dry white wine with a wonderful fruit-forward palate and a delicate long finish. Garganega and Pinot Grigio are both widely grown grapes from the Veneto region of Italy. The combination of these two grapes, results in a wine with white flowers on the nose and well-balanced juicy fruit on the palate. This wine is delicious on its own as an aperitif and it makes the perfect complement for seafood, poultry, and salads.
Durello / ChardonnayDuca del Frassino Durello / Chardonnay is a delicious full-bodied white wine with a pleasant lingering finish. The Chardonnay's luscious apples, pears, vanilla and caramel flavors are perfectly complemented by the Durello's flavors of delicate field flowers, peaches and fresh crispness. Durello is a native grape varietal from the Venezie region of Italy.
This is the one that I received and it was fabulous. All my friends and family truly enjoyed it, as much as I did. Thank you Cantina Di Soave for the opportunity to do this review!
The Duca Cabernet / Corvina is a dry robust red blend with layers of bold lush flavors on the nose and palate. The Cabernet and Corvina are both locally grown grapes from the Venezie region of Italy. The Cabernet provides deep purple color and delicious dark fruit flavors while the Corvina adds aromatic red cherries; the combination makes for a wine that is terrific on its own as well it goes great with meat, pastas, and cheeses.
Merlot / Pinot Noir
Duca del Frassino Merlot / Pinot Noir is a wonderful combination of red fruits, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, and fragrant spices such as vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. This delicious red wine is velvety in the mouth with a generous, lingering finish.
