Vigna Del Lauro Chardonnay Isonzo DOC

This lightly oaked Chardonnay is a fine example of the Friuli terroir, expressing classic weight and structure with aromas of crisp apple, white flowers and subtle hints of tropical fruit and vanilla spice. A lively palate with a satisfying weight, this wine finishes with just the balance between fruit, minerality, and acidity. The value of this Chardonnay cannot be overstated compared to classic Burgundy or California Chardonnay.
