Collezione de Marchi Chardonnay 2009

Producer: Isole e Olena
Paolo de Marchi has now turned his hand to Chardonnay as well and created this extraordinary wine which is now considered Tuscany's finest Chardonnay, if not all of Italy's. Barrel-fermented Chardonnay of finesse and opulence, this wine shows Paolo De Marchi's feather-light touch in dealing with this "overexposed" grape variety. Not the sublime product of a cool weather climate (Burgundy) nor the thick juice of the southern hemisphere, this is Chardonnay of sweet lemon-zest aromas and a lush and fine palate. Complex and fresh, it matches well with earthy, summer fare.
