Chardonnay Friuli DOC

Tasting Notes

Perhaps the most famous white grape vine, Chardonnay originated in the Burgundy area and it has become widespread in wine-producing areas throughout the world. It arrived in Friuli in the middle of the 19th century and has become prevalent only in the last few decades.

This unoaked Chardonnay,  100% estate-grown and bottled,  offers all of the varietal characteristics and expresses a broad aromatic range, with hints of white peach and tropical fruit. Soft in the mouth, it tempts the palate with excellent body finishing long with notes of toasted almonds. Pairs well with fish and seafood, but also with stuffed agnolotti pasta in broth, ravioli with sage-butter sauce and seafood risotto.

A new addition to the portfolio, introduced in the spring of 2019.
