Chardonnay (Italy)

Italian Chardonnay is rather difficult to find in New Hampshire, but my quest is before me, and I hope to bring some tasting notes to light. You may remember that Chardonnay is not a white wine that I'm particularly fond of (blaspheme), and it appears that the writer for Wine90 (no fan of white wine), was won-over to Italian Chardonnay.
In fact, the Antinori Umbria Cervaro della Sala 2005 Italian Chardonnay is one of the best Chardonnay wines I've tasted from anywhere, and with a rating of 92+ points is an encouragement to my enjoyment of Chardonnay wines in general. So, I'll press on with my exploration of Italian Chardonnay, and if this is of interest to you, the list below chronicles the results.
