Chardonnay 2009,

14% alc. 3,170 bottles produced. Chardonnay. One doesn’t expect to find a Chardonnay of this caliber in Tuscany. A harmonious and elegant bouquet, of medium proportions, combining an array of aromas, from lemon pie to pineapple, from vanilla to salty nuances. The palate is dense enough to indicate its southern origins, but its freshness, refined complexity, minerality and amazingly long mid-palate confirm the wine’s high pedigree. Contender for the second cult Tuscan white after Batar? Essential to serve at the right temperature, otherwise alcohol gets in the way.
