Gaia & rey

Gaja, Gaia & Rey Chardonnay 2017

RRP £235

On the basis of this vintage, this is the best Chardonnay in Italy by a mile – rich, powerful and complex, but with great elegance and freshness. Open and generous on the nose, with vanilla, ripe apple, toasted bread, cooked butter, whole milk and pineapple. Great balance and good freshness on the palate, and a long finish of amazing complexity. An exceptional wine.
