Bottega Vinaia Chardonnay'02, Trentino Alto Adige, Italy

An elegant Chardonnay full of character not overoaked.

Technical Data:100% Chardonnay. 70% of the wine ages in stainless steel, 30% in barriques. The wine is then blended and bottled after an additional four months in steel to stabilize the blend.

Description:Straw yellow color with golden highlights. Intense bouquet with fruity aromas such as tropical fruits and light vanilla notes. Dry, refreshing and flavorful palate with a firm structure leading into a long lasting finish. The palate is full of tropical fruits, spice with a hint of nutmeg, and a touch of toasty oak.

Food Pairing & Service:Serve at 48°-50° F. Pairs well with a wide range of dishes from the usual seafood and fish to white meats or light red meats dishes. Should be also prety good with a creamy pasta dish with an Alfredo sauce.


Suggested Retail Price:$14.99
