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.
While recent trends in Chardonnay production favor young, clean, uncomplicated wines, Castello Banfi`s Fontanelle Chardonnay remains an aristocratic favorite, a varietal imbued with complexity, durability and cerebral appeal.
Straw yellow with golden reflections, Fontanelle`s bouquet is intensely fruity with notes of apple and apricot.
Fontanelle Chardonnay is a superlative wine with veal roasts, shellfish, poultry and fish prepared with complex sauces.
|"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."
