2014 ANTICA “NAPA VALLEY” CHARDONNAY
After 630 years and 26 generations of winemaking, Antinori is the tenth oldest family owned company in the world, with winemaking roots dating back to the late 1300’s. Literally revolutionizing the wine industry while creating icons like Tignanello, Antinori’s Napa Valley project which began in the 1980’s is very exciting. With more than 50 separate vineyard blocks planted on the steep, rocky hillsides of Atlas Peak, the Estate Chardonnay shines with vivid impressions of smoky hazelnuts, honeyed pineapple, buttery topical fruit, baking almonds and ripe pear…
Brought to life by winemaker Renzo Cotarella, Wine Enthusiast’s “Winemaker of the Year” in 2001, the 2014 Antica Chardonnay was barrel fermented, sur lie for 7 months prior to bottling. Constantly changing and evolving in the glass, this wonderfully individualistic Chardonnay manifests a perfect mix of rich, buttery elements with a fine cut of acidity that beautifully carries the fruit across the palate with precision and finesse. I strongly recommend securing a case or two of this beautiful expression of high-elevation Chardonnay.
