Chardonnay DOC Alto Adige
This international grape variety has found a home with us.
The direction and altitude of our vineyard and the sandy, limestone soils with their porphyry gravel and Gardena sandstone allow our Chardonnay to develop in all its uniqueness.
The wine is a pale yellow with greenish reflexes. It possesses notes of freshly toasted bread and freshly ground coffee, with hints of citrus and apple. Strong and fresh on the palate, it has fruity, roasted flavours and a hint of brioche in the finish.
Our Chardonnay pairs very well with seafood, hearty pasta dishes served with seafood or cream sauce, light poultry and veal as well as pastry dishes and terrines.
This wine has a beautiful, pale yellow colour with greenish hues.
It is intense on the nose, with a strong aroma of toasted bread and freshly ground coffee, while still leaving room for underlying hints of citrus and apple.
