Antinori Cervaro della Sala 2006

I suspect there is something deeply unfashionable about liking very much a chardonnay, from Italy, that tasted not unlike a Penfolds Yattarna at its best. It does have 15% grechetto in it, if that helps.


Wow is this a good chardonnay. Golden in colour, it has a medium to pronounced intensity fragrance of oak, nuts, honey and a yeast autolysis character. Outstandingly good length on the palate suits this rich, extravagant wine. 95 points.

Abv: 13%
Price: around $100
