Monteverro has released an impressive set of new wines this year starting with their 2016 Chardonnay. I tasted bottle number 3,894 of 9,163 made. From the first sip, the wine boasts balance and elegance, and there is a bright end note that will appeal to both fans and foes of oak-aged Chardonnay. Creamy flavors of orchard fruit, nectarine, honey and almond wrap smoothly over the palate. A bright hint of acidity adds momentum and energy. This wine marries the best of Chardonnay with the best of sunny southern Tuscany.
