(100% chardonnay; cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare; spent ten months in 50% new and 50% once-used French oak barriques): Gold-tinged straw-yellow. Floral notes of mimosa and orange blossom complicate rich honeyed aromas of banana, vanilla and minerals on the deep nose. Suave and luscious in the mouth, but with very good freshness and lift to its rich banana, pineapple and buttery flavors. The finish is smooth, bright and long. This is one of the few chardonnays in Italy in which oak is used judiciously and where the classic character of high-quality chardonnay comes through clearly.
