The 2007 Rochioli Chardonnay shows lemon-green color with medium intensity and bright clarity. Developing aromas and flavors of lemon meringue, pie crust, lime and orange peel are accented by flint and a chalk dust-like minerality. Notes of pineapple, vanilla, roasted hazelnuts and a blossom floral character add depth. The wine is supple, well-defined, refreshing, elegant and expressive. Be patient and let this gem sit in the cellar for a few years and you will be greatly rewarded. Try this complex Chardonnay with roasted chicken and new potatoes.
