The 2010 Chardonnay Martinelli Road is big, rich and enveloping. A broad-shouldered, expansive wine, the 2010 totally covers the palate with endless layers of fruit. Dried pears and white flowers are some of the nuances that emerge from a Chardonnay that is silky and exceptionally polished from start to finish. It is so unusual for a big wine to have so much detail and nuance, but the Martinelli Road does -- in spades. This is a fabulous showing from Martinelli. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
