94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2010
($65) Straw-gold: interestingly, this is lighter in color than the 2007 or 2006 basic chardonnays. Knockout nose displays impressively deep lees-accented pear, banana, mineral and mango aromas complicated by vanilla and flint. Lush, palate-coating tropical fruit, melon and tangy mineral flavors are pure and refined, with smoke and sweet butter notes adding complexity. Finishes impressively long and balanced, with very good grip and an austere mineral quality. One of the best chardonnays I have tasted from Italy in quite some time.
