Apricot apple, lots of vanilla, nice firm body of acids. This was a first bottle from the box, others should only grow

Very pleasant. Not as complex as I remember from earlier vintages.

Ooh bah oom ba ba.robust but dainty majorettes holding down the somewhat-oaky doc here. Sooooo bright! Acid keen! Alcohol still potent but this is no...I don’t know the right metaphor. It’s good.

Lots of vanilla and baking spice with peach skin, almond, and golden raisin. Palate isn’t as full or fleshy as the nose suggests and the finish proves to be long with salty minerality. This is delicious now but in it for the long haul. Would love to try again in five+ years.

Powerhouse Umbrian Chard on steroids. Apricots, rich vanilla notes. Probably needed a decant but perfect match for Tuscan appetizers...and for sure tastes best on home field!

Should keep in the cellar, but to good to not drink. So will need to get more. Citric entry, with strong vanila woody chardonay.

Powerhouse oaked chardonnay. Tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, sharp citrus italian acids. Massive butter filming mouth feel. Went excelent with risotto with crab, and white fish filets.

I'm not dead yet, Sala defiantly cried out as she spread melted butter on wheat toast and topped it with brown sugar baked peaches and a dollop of mascarpone. #Antinori #italysgreatestwhite #wine

Stunning Chardonnay and Grechetto blend fron Umbria. Fascinating as drinks very California in it's youth but like Burgundy as it ages. Love it
