2012 Giordano Piemonte “Maestri Italiani” Chardonnay d.o.c., Italy, $14 (S) – Rating 90

A very balanced Chardonnay. Aged Sur-Lie with just the slightest hint of oak to round out the edges but not to overwhelm. From the Piedmont Region of northwest Italy. Soft aromos waft from the glass of red apples and baking spice. On the palate, expect an elegant and plush mouth-feel with a hint of acidity. Flavors of red apple, baking spice, tropicals and a touch of pineapple on the finish. Buy this Wine
