Maculan Veneto Chardonnay 2018 (750ml/12)
Founded in 1947 in Breganze, a small town in the Province of Vicenza (Veneto), Maculan is now at the 3rd Generation of winemakers. Fausto Maculan, who took over in the 1970s and made Maculan a benchmark producer in Italy, has passed the baton to his two daughters: Angela and Maria Vittoria. In pure Breganze style, Maculan makes wines from both native and “international” varieties, which have been introduced by the French and the Austrians in 1800, and hence here are considered traditional. ...New York, New Jersey, California
A 100% Chardonnay made by Maculan from grapes sourced from trusted growers in the Breganze area. Fermented dry in temp-controlled stainless steel tank, the wine is released after a brief aging on the fine lees and in the bottle. Unoaked to preserve the fresh aromas.
An un-oaked Chardonnay, loaded with yellow and tropical fruit and a round, juicy finish with plenty of body and balance. Makes a great companion for seafood, fish crudo but also white meats.
