Tellus Falesco Chardonnay Umbria 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Tellus Chardonnay aims to capture imminent drinkability through stainless steel elevage. Expect a crisp reference to citric fruits such as lemons and orchard fruits such as apples to define the aromas and palate impressions.Unoaked Chardonnay offers delightful play around the table. Citric and orchard fruits together with moderate acidity and round mouthfeel complement a range of both raw and cooked seafood. Further, the subtle spice enhances grain-based salads coaxing out inherent nuttiness of quinoa, farro or wild rice." -Importers Notes

Cabernet, Carignane, Gamay, Grenache, Merlot, Malbeck, Pinot, Sauvignon, Syrah... Lazio generally proves to be an area where the advantages from the cultivation of the foreign varietals are remarkable, especially for what concerns the ones coming from France.. In the countryside surrounding Rome, Frosinone and Viterbo it’s widely held that they contribute to the improvement of the local wine production. Read less
