1997 Castello Banfi Rosso di Montalcino
While recent trends in Chardonnay production favor young, clean, uncomplicated wines, Castello Banfi's Fontanelle Chardonnay remains an aristocratic favorite, a varietal imbued with complexity, durability and cerebral appeal. Fontanelle Chardonnay is a superlative wine with veal roasts, shellfish, poultry and fish prepared with complex sauces.
