Method & Production
This Chardonnay displays deliciously ripe fruit with a hint of aromatics. It shows vanilla and toast on the finish. This powerful wine is truly age-worthy, with elegant complexity and great length.
An excellent companion to vitello tonnato and marinated octopus as well as to mixed antipasti and grilled vegetables; a good combination with cheese dumplings and pasta aglio olio peperoncino (with garlic, olive oil and peperoncino), and also with grilled fish with fennel, or crepes au gratin with a radicchio filling, and fresh Tomino cheese.
