Castello di Pomino Frescobaldi Pomino Benefizio 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and oaky on the nose with almondy wood tones, a licorice mineral note and rich fuji apple/green apple fruits. A bit fleshy in the mouth with good acidity in a clean, brisk style that is fairly precise with pure fruit on the midpalate then smoky and lightly mineral on the finish. A very attractive style of Chardonnay. 2009-2016 91pts

Could easily be mistaken for Napa Chardonnay, with its ripe pear, fig and hazelnut flavor profile and long, creamy finish. Very good, and a good value, too. Ready to drink now.

Benefizio is barrel-fermented and barrel-aged in French oak. Centuries ago, the Church of Pomino gave the vineyard to Frescobaldi Family to produce wine for the celebration of mass; hence the name Benefizio... Latin for gift.
