Banfi Chardonnay Fontanelle 2012

Banfi Chardonnay Fontanelle 750ml 2012      
Sku: 1839229*

While recent trends in Chardonnay production favor young, clean, uncomplicated wines, Castello Banfi`s Fontanelle Chardonnay remains an aristocratic favorite, a varietal imbued with complexity, durability and cerebral appeal. Straw yellow with golden reflections, Fontanelle`s bouquet is intensely fruity with notes of apple and apricot. Fontanelle Chardonnay is a superlative wine with veal roasts, shellfish, poultry and fish prepared with complex sauces.

Tasting notes
The light straw color. Big and intriguing variety of aromas includingfresh green apple, with hints of dried fruit, honey and fresh baked bread notes. Vanilla aromas coming from the French oak integrate and complete the structure of this wine giving it pleasant notes of wood.

Review
