The Full Review
Up there where the air is rare in northern Italy the grapes that cling to mountain slopes thrive in the sun and retain an edge of acidity not often experienced from a grape like Chardonnay. This wine sees no oak and is all about the fight between edgy and deep, with each side losing and winning at the same time. The nose is filled with ripe, round aromas of green apple and lemon-lime with a little sweet jasmine sprinkled in. On the palate you can really see that push and pull, as the wine is angled by the bracing acidity, and at the same time structured with a nice, natural varietal depth that coats the palate. It's a great wine to help understand the lighter side of Chardonnay, and it won’t cost an arm and a leg.
