2011 Martinelli Bella Vigna Sonoma County Chardonnay

14.4% alc., 384 cases, $40. One of the coolest growing years on record in the last 30 years resulting in a late harvest. · Light golden yellow color in the glass. Pleasing aromas of fresh-squeezed lemon, honey, briar and petrol. Somewhat creamy on the palate, with catching flavors of lemon, poached pear, green apple, toast, burnt caramel and butterscotch. Score: 89. Reviewed April 20, 2015
