This 100% Chardonnay belongs to Castello Banfi estate-bottled single-varietals range. Thanks to the microclimate of our Montalcino vineyards and to the aging in barrique this is an aritstocratic favorite, a varietal imbued with complexity.
The light straw color. Big and intriguing variety of aromas including fresh green apple, with hints of dried fruit, honey and fresh baked bread notes. Vanilla aromas coming from the French oak integrate and complete the structure of this wine giving it pleasant notes of wood.
"This complex and distinctive Chardonnay from Italy blends toasty, spicy oak aromas with ample fruit and nutty nuances to make a concentrated, focused, nicely balanced whole. Long on the finish and thoroughly enticing."Publication: Wine Spectator
Fontanelle Chardonnay is a superlative wine with veal roasts, shellfish, poultry and fish prepared with complex sauces.
