Original Tasting and Review:

By way of background: This is Castello D'Albola Chardonnay, IGT Toscana, Italy, 2008.

In the glass: Castello D'Albola Chardonnay shows as light yellow in the glass.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this chardonnay shows slate and lemon aromas, no real grassiness.

On the palate: The first element on the palate is round, even slate with an underlying sweetness.  No real acids to speak of.

And the wrap-up: The finish is clean, lengthy, and based on that slate structure.

In summary: Overall, wonderful, slick experience. Rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
