Di Lenardo Father's Eye Chardonnay 2016

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyA bit old school in structure with smoke, hazelnuts, and lemon. The attack is creamier than you might expect, with baked apple, lemon, nuts, brioche, this weighty wine has layered flavours that have yet to melt together. The fruit is grown in the coolish Friuli-Venezia Giulia, at the foothills of the Alps. The wine is fermented and aged for three months in new American wood barriques and goes thorough malolactic fermentation.
