Appearance: golden core, translucent rim. Nose: butter, honey. Palate: oaky, buttery and fruity. Balanced wine from color to taste.

They have a unique process which they toast the oak giving it a caramel nuance. 60,000 cases produced most if the juice comes from mum and if free run press

In Long Beach visiting a fancy friend who only drinks fancy wine. I was surprised when she told me the price of this one--- it's amazing and amazingly priced. It's buttery and smooth. Falesco's Ferentano Lazio is still my most favorite "Chardonnay".

Nice Chard. Slight buttery flavor but light. If it is oaked I couldn't tell. Price good for around 12 bucks, looking for more information on the vineyard

Superb! Ultra smooth, creamy and light. Easy flow and a bit sweet. Smells like a caramel graham cracker.
