Ponzi Chardonnay has evolved tremendously over the last 30 years. Consistency of quality has remained paramount through our experiments, discoveries and new tools. Winemaker Luisa Ponzi understands the importance of critical clone selection, control of yields, crucial picking times, balancing the acidity and truly letting the wines express themselves.
Over 30 years of research has yielded a unique Chardonnay that is ideally suited to the region. Artful blending of many cuvées creates the Reserve. Each cuvée is made from grapes of varying vineyards, age, clone and cultivation. The mouth is broad and silky, reminiscent of crème brûlée, with graceful structure, underlying minerality and a long, bright balanced finish.
