Francis Ford Coppola may be best known as the Academy Award winning director of The Godfather – but he’s also gaining an international reputation for his stunning wines.
This charming Chardonnay is an homage to Coppola’s Italian-inspired San Francisco eatery. It also calls to mind Café Trieste, a nearby Italian espresso house where Coppola penned much of the screenplay for The Godfather. Acclaimed winemaker Corey Beck sourced premium parcels from top sites throughout California, during the exceptional 2017 harvest.
Look forward to ripe tropical fruit aromas and flavors, underpinned by honeyed, nutty notes (thanks to time in oak). With a creamy, vanilla-laced finish, it’s a delicious match for savory dishes like roasted white meats or seafood pastas.
As with all of Coppola’s wines, we expect this rich Chardonnay to be very popular. Hurry for your share.
