Wine & Spirits - October 2018
Year’s Best Northeast Italy & Slovenia
92| CHARDONNAY Riserva Baron Salvadori 2015
This wine tastes like a barrel of freshly crushed apples from one of the many orchards on the South Tyrol’s valley floor. The wine ages in oak (tonneaux) for ten months without undergoing malolactic conversion, leaving subtle smoky notes while preserving the pure and distinct fruit flavors. Richness and lift find balance in the long, spicy finish.
