Aurente "CHARDONNAY" DOC 2010 - Lungarotti
A top white wine that will compete with the best white wines available. Chardonnay and Grechetto from hillside vineyards. A white wine with great structure. Intense straw yellow with alluring golden reflections, rich and elegant scents of orange blossom, banana, peach, pineapple and sweet, light notes of oak, vanilla and butter with delicate hints of coconut and white chocolate; it opens with refined flavour, fresh fruit and sapid, delicate citrus acidity; a long finish with excellent persistence. Proud of its Umbrian nature, Aurente has a strong and sunny temperament. The name recalls the preciousness of gold, both in its color and in the concentration of aromas and flavour. The Grechetto grape is fundamental to round out the Chardonnay, accentuating this wine’s Umbrian character.

As in France, 2010 is an exceptional vintage in Italy and it almost anywhere. The Brunello is an unmatched silky, spirited sagrantino in their youth should take to guard and very Ongue Barolo offer outsized aromatic complexity. Smaller vintages are also to discover in such a millesime.Les wine could mature in ideal conditions. The wines are full, they offer a bold beautiful and interesting despite the heat balance of the vintage. A forgotten cellar for great vintages.
