Castelli Estate Il Liris Chardonnay 2021


This range has been one of my favourites since being introduced a few years ago. It aims to push comes boundaries especially in the winemaking cellar.

Then the palate releases with a powerful statement of textured layered fruit displaying a deep intensity with a dry savoury and slightly flinty finish. This is complex with a capital C.
