Ratings & Reviews

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"The 2015 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is a lavish and exuberant white wine that is bursting with sun-ripened aromas of exotic fruit, peach, pineapple and a distant touch of cinnamon. Acidity is never a problem with Chardonnay grown in this part of Northern Italy, even in a hot vintage such as this. In fact, the wine offers lasting freshness. Malolactic fermentations also finish without issues. Some 8,500 bottles were produced. I tasted this wine on the warm side (at room temperature), and despite this fact, the mineral definition and clarity of the wine was impressive. The finish is silky, smooth and soft." - Monica Larner (29th Jun 2018)
