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

Warmup wine, tasting group. Nice. Broad mouthfeel of Chardonnay but mineral. Integrated oak. Acid on the low side. Umbria.

Well made, but loosing tension due to its hefty oak treatment.
