TASTING NOTE: This wine is a blend of Chardonnay and Calabrian powerhouse grape Greco Bianco. The Chardonnay brings a crisp, tropical layer of fruit flavour that envelops the floral, mineral-tinged core provided by the Greco Bianco. Look for flavours of grapefruit and pineapple over hints of white flower and wet stone. [Luca Maroni tasting note not available.] Score - 96 (lucamaroni.com, March 31, 2023) Price $ 22.95
