Production

The Chardonnay vines grow in vineyards in the Valle dei Laghi and hills around Trento, with yields of 80-90 hl per hectare. The grapes are hand-picked into small crates and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle the following spring - followed by ageing on the lees for at least 15 months in cool, underground cellars.

Tasting notes

Appealing aromas of citrus and ripe peach, with notes of brioche. On the palate fresh apple and lightly floral characters, ripe and textural, balanced by crisp citrus acidity, and a persistent mousse.

Food match

Enjoyable with or without food - a perfect aperitif or celebration wine.
