Straw color. Aromas and flavors of toasted apple cake and honey butter with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, brisk finish evoking nuances of pineapple with no oak flavor. A fresh Chardonnay with a gentle sensibility.

Regional Chardonnay

Although not an indigenous Italian variety, Chardonnay is produced in several regions in that country, from Piedmont and Friuli in the north to Sicily and Puglia in the south. As with Chardonnays from America, there are many different styles, ranging from very light to riper and oak-laden. Among the most complex, age worthy examples of Italian Chardonnay are those from cool northern regions, such as Alto Adige, Friuli and Valle d'Aosta. These wines tend to have minimal oak influence (though there are exceptions), very good pear, melon and apple varietal fruit and offer very good natural acidity.
