Passopisciaro Guardiola Bianco 2013
Wine AdvocateA pure expression of Chardonnay, the 2013 Guardiola is a lush and generous expression with full body, sensual appeal. The bouquet is profound and fluid with pretty aromas of toasted cereal, tropical fruit, apricot, honey and white rose. The bouquet also reveals those dusty mineral notes that are characteristic of volcanic winemaking. It shows a rich and supple texture with creamy layers.
Wine EnthusiastPeach blossom, Spanish broom, white flower and mineral aromas create a lovely bouquet. Made entirely with Chardonnay, the savory, creamy palate offers yellow apple, mature pear, nectarine, pastry and mineral alongside fresh acidity. Endowed with depth and balance, this will continue to develop over the next several years. Drink 2015-2020.
