Natalie's Score: 90/100

Crisp and fresh Italian white wine that's slightly off-dry creating a lovely savoury note. This is made from mostly Chardonnay grapes and a touch of Pinot Bianco so it has a longer life than 100% Pinot Bianco. Notes of golden apple and lime. Pair with fresh seafood.

Food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, garden salad.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I've tried other vintages of this wine and don't recall liking it as much as this one. Any lightness on the aromas are made up by a fuller richer palate. Great value for a great wine.
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Priya: Super fresh and crisp, reminds me of a dry vouvray. This is a blend of pinot blanc and chardonnay, which explains why I--who am not typically a chardonnay fan--like it so much. This is so light and easy to drink that I could drink several glasses without realizing it. And I'd be quite happy that I did!

Alex: Pretty pear fruit, fresh white flowers, green apple. Fresh yet rich and round. Crisp with an herbal edge with a taste of sweetness on the finish. Not surprising that this is up your alley my lady!
Mymi Thesingingsommelier - Sommelier, FWS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The Frescobaldi family is intimately linked to the history of Tuscany itself. With over 700 years of wine making in the region, the family still artfully crafts wines with the utmost respect for tradition and the land.
This wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. Silver yellow in color with quite an intensely perfumed nose dominated by fresh hay, honey and citrus notes.
Fresh and zesty on the palate leaving a lovely honeyed aftertaste on the tongue.
Very yummy and food friendly. Deep fried scallops sprinkled with fresh lemon juice would be spectacular with this wine!
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This harmonic blend between Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc creates a refreshing, round, and satisfying Bianco. Aged for 3 months in small barrels and 4 in stainless steel, resulting in a pleasant wine with citrus peel, Bosc pear, and Granny Smith apple notes combined with honey, with a creamy texture on the mid palate. Enjoyable on its own but also extremely food friendly: from salads and most seafood, to white and pink fish. Lovable wine which appeals to most palates.
