Chardonnay 2012, The Wine Advocate

The 2012 Chardonnay is a rich and creamy Tuscan white. You’ll want to pair it with shellfish risotto or vegetables au gratin. This warm vintage delivers loads of yellow fruit that emerges from the bouquet with power. Beyond the fruit are rose petal, pine nut and exotic spice aromas. Hints of vanilla and dried pineapple make brief appearances. The wine stands apart for its texture. The richness is soothing and soft. The finish is velvety and supple. This vintage is slightly less complex, perhaps, but the results are impressive nonetheless.
