Chardonnay

Vs Brut

After soft pressing, the must is fermented for around 12 days at 16 - 18 °C. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remains on its lees until it is time for the prise de mousse.
The second fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled pressurized tanks, inoculating the wine with selected yeasts. Only following a further maturation period of several months in pressurized tanks (autoclaves) is the wine ready for bottling.

Chardonnay

TASTE PROFILE

A crisp, dry and effervescent wine

On the nose it displays attractive scents of flowers and white-fleshed fruit, in particular Golden Delicious apples.

Its flavor is well-balanced, fresh, and mellow yet vibrant. The delicate fruity sensations persist on the long, clean finish.

An excellent aperitif, it is also an ideal accompaniment for a light vegetarian or fish-based meal. Delicious with pinzimonio (raw vegetables dipped in seasoned olive oil) or a seafood risotto.
