Langhe Doc Chardonnay

Tasting characteristics

Appearance: more or less bright straw yellow depending on the vintage.
Bouquet: the most fanciful scents of ripe fruit and an excellent mineral quality emerge, together with optimal freshness.
Flavour: warm and expansive, it envelops the palate with gentleness and character, ending with a lingering aftertaste; undoubtedly blessed with the structure provided by the Langa soils.

It is best to serve it at temperatures between 12-15°C.

This wine belongs to the ranks of structured whites, capable of evolving and improving as time goes by. It is very good with saltwater and some freshwater fish dishes, such as trout. The combination with white and red meats is exceptional when they are cooked slowly with delicate spices.
