- De Forville Chardonnay Cascina Buc Piemonte 2011 Product #25984 (In Stock)
There's actually a lot of Chardonnay grown in Italy, but it tends to suffer from one of two faults: too expensive or not very good. This is the exception! Barolo's DeForville family planted a small vineyard in Barbaresco to Chardonnay in the mid-1980s and the results are very, very, impressive. This bright, crisp, Chardonnay is vinified and raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness and energy. It's creamy in the mouth with juicy pineapple, green apple, fresh butter, and a touch of chalk but finishes with a lovely squirt of lemony acidity. Great with seafood or just to start off a meal.
