The wines

CHARDONNAY

Classification: D.O.C. ISONZO

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay

History: native French vine, wide spread in the Champagne region, for a long time erroneously identified in Friuli as being Pinot Bianco, at least until 1978 when it was placed on the national register. Both sparkling and non-sparkling wines are produced from this variety.

Tasting notes: yellow colour with golden reflections. Fine, elegant, noble. Bouquet with notes of apple, crusts of fresh bread. Copiously inviting taste of apple and acacia flowers.

Vinification: the grapes, gathered at a temperature of 22°C, upon arrival in the winery were immediately separated, by rotation and compression, from the cluster, then soft pressed. Must chilled at 15°. Settling overnight. Pouring of must cleaned with selected yeast. Fermentation at 18° C for 12 days. Decanting. Ageing in stainless steel vats.

Serving temperature: 12/14°C.
