Castello di Pomino Pomino Bianco Riserva Benefizio 2010

Castello di Pomino Pomino Bianco Riserva Benefizio 750ML 2010       
Sku: 16232

This elegant, supremely distinctive cru displays an unbelievably rich array of aromas and sensory impressions. One hundred per cent Chardonnay sourced from the vineyard of the same name, at 700 metres’ elevation, it was produced for the first time in 1973 and was Italy’s first barrique-aged white wine. (Riserva since 2005)

Rating
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Oct 15 2013)
A lush and opulent style, boasting flavors of vanilla, butter, peach, white flowers and clove. Rich but not soft, with a long aftertaste of flowers and stone fruit. Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. Drink now through 2018. 325 cases imported.-BS
 Vinous 91 points (Sep 2012)
(100% chardonnay; cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare; spent ten months in 50% new and 50% once-used French oak barriques): Gold-tinged straw-yellow. Floral notes of mimosa and orange blossom complicate rich honeyed aromas of banana, vanilla and minerals on the deep nose. Suave and luscious in the mouth, but with very good freshness and lift to its rich banana, pineapple and buttery flavors. The finish is smooth, bright and long. This is one of the few chardonnays in Italy in which oak is used judiciously and where the classic character of high-quality chardonnay comes through clearly.
