Scoring 16 points, with 14% alcohol, the 2017 Fontanelle Chardonnay from Banfi cost under $24. It is a fun clean well-made wine.It will work with white meats, even turkey, and is soft and round in the mouth.


Young and old wine drinkers will enjoy this Italian Chardonnay made in a Californian style.

There are ML induced tropical fruits and some spice notes that create a lot of interest. It will pair with a lot of different foods.

It is just two years old, but ready to savor. I wouldn’t age it long; enjoy it at its peak which is during its first five years. In Vino Veritas.
