Maddalena Chardonnay, Monterey, 2015

Winemaker. Mother. Visionary. Estate reserve. In 1946, family matriarch Maddalena Riboli began her lifelong journey with San Antonio Winery. She founded one of the first tasting rooms in the state and a highly successful restaurant. Today, the third and fourth generations of the Riboli family honor her passion and dedication with each bottle of her namesake wine. Chardonnay thrives in the cool, windy climate of Monterey. With the influences of morning fog and sandy oils, our family's estate vineyards produce intense flavors of tropical fruit with aromas of citrus and guava. Barrel fermentation adds a touch of spicy oak. Enjoy with pan-seared halibut and wild mushroom risotto. - The Riboli Family. Winemakers: Anthony Riboli & Arnaud Debons. Riboli 1917 selection. Alc. 14.9% by vol. Cellared & bottled by Maddalena Vineyards Los Angeles, CA.
