Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Year after year, this delicious white from the Frescobaldi family offers great value. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco (a.k.a. Pinot Blanc), it’s made entirely from estate-grown fruit. Featuring aromas of pear, apple and peach. My note: A zesty, refreshing white with grapefruit and lime notes. No oak, lots of mouth-watering acidity, bone-dry. Medium-bodied.

Chardonnay Pinot Bianco food pairings: grilled herbed chicken, mushroom risotto, barbecued pork chops with apple sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc is what caught my attention with this wine and I was very curious to try it. Had it at dinner at Grange Vin + Bouffe in old Montreal with tuna tartare, risotto and shrimps and mac 'n cheese with lobster. A very refreshing wine with fruity flavours and a pleasant scent of pear.
