Aldo Conterno Langhe Chardonnay ''Il Bussiador'' 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
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.

Old-fashioned in the best sense. The appley nose is gently smoky, with a good deal of spice from the oak. Rich and creamy, with a lovely texture and fine acidity. Long and stylish, with bite on the finish.
