La Spinetta, Lidia "Limited Edition" Chardonnay

Rare & Exclusive Italian Chardonnay!
SHIPPING NOW

La Spinetta's "Limited Edition" Lidia Chardonnay is one of the most exclusive wine we have to fight for every year. 

With more and more of the estate's prized Chardonnay grapes going into Spinetta's "Contratto" sparkling wine and even more being consumed locally at Spinetta's restaurant, Ape, it is no wonder this wine is more elusive with each release.

From the exceptional 2015 vintage, this particular release is outstanding! It is refined, textured and well structured...

White blossom, young d'Anjou pear, lemon oil, white peach, white pepper, a stony backbone, and a zingy, mouthwatering finish. The beauty of this white is its creamy texture and opposing frame of penetrating minerality and complexity.

Lidia has the weight of a Meursault, the spine of a Chablis, and a hint of nut and spice. It is layered and complex and should really have "Montrachet" written on its label.

With only 250 cases made for the world and 180 of those cases being consumed at the winery's restaurant, you can understand why this wine is in such demand each year.

This is an EWM Exclusive.... Enjoy while it lasts!

$67.95 per bottle / $815.40 per case
