A delicious 100% Chardonnay grown in marly, chalky soils and barrel fermented for extra creaminess and refinement. Monteriolo is matured in barrel for nine months before it is refined, filtered and bottled. It then is held in bottle for eight months before it is released from the winery.
Bright yellow with golden hues, Monteriolo offers juicy flavors of ripe tropical fruits, such as pineapple and melon, followed by pure, fragrant aromas of vanilla, apple pie, caramel, and chamomile. On the palate, the bright acidity balances the supple tropical fruit flavors. A rich finish lingers on the palate with a note of tangerine.
Suggested Food Pairings
Recommended with rich pastas, quiches, omelettes, and grilled white meats, it is also superb with grilled or baked salmon.
