Occasional Wine Note: Who said you can't find great Chardonnay in Itally? Only those without a clue. The wine here is as beautiful as the bottle here! This one is soft, elegant, and complex. Beautiful lemon curd, honey, vanilla, and a touch of spice all so well integrated and balanced. Precious!

    Critic Score: 95

    Wonderfully fresh nose of tarte au citron with just a whiff of vanilla bean. At once concentrated and very elegant, this is unquestionably one of the great chardonnays of Italy. Stunning balance at the very long and precise, nutty finish that has so much energy! Plenty of aging potential here. Drink or hold.

    Packaged in its distinctive bottle with an Art Deco design, the Schreckbichl Colterenzio 2020 Alto Adige Chardonnay Lafóa is tonic and tight with lemon curd, grapefruit essence, crushed stone, honey, saffron and a glossy note of latex or natural rubber. The wine flaunts a linear style, but it also shows impressive complexity with a fluid bouquet that changes with each swirl of the glass. It ends with a soft hint of oak spice or vanilla cream. Fruit comes from an eight-hectare site at a cool 500 to 550 meters in elevation.
