Italy — Tuscany • $36.95 • 90/100

New-world Chardonnay from an old-world region, made by Marchesi De’ Frescobaldi. The oak spice and resin on the attack allow some aromas of ripe peach, apricot and yellow apple to peak through. Dry, rich and creamy, the fruit expands on the palate with some toasted nut and vanilla complexity. The finish dries as the richness is enfolded into the lingering acidity. This is really quite a good wine, especially for those who appreciate a rather heavily oaked style, but with much more underlying finesse and elegance than you would normally find with new-world wines that are following this path. • Tasted 2017-09-16 • LCBO id#332247 • Find it at your nearest LCBOPHILIPPE DANDURAND WINES LTD.
