||With chardonnay you get a straw-yellow wine tending to the golden, with a very intense and fine scent, fruity with exotic fruit hints that over time can enrich and capture great complexity. The taste expresses a good balance between freshness and softness, with aromatic persistence of great elegance. From this vine are obtained wines with good predisposition to refinement in barriques but also achieve great results with classic method sparkling wines.
||It is used exclusively for wine production, both of the tranquil and sparkling type. Vinification is generally done in purity for the production of quality wines. It can be advantageously mixed with other grapes for the production of common table wines. In the first case, there are wines of a straw yellow color, with a delicate fruity scent that is a characteristic of it. Slightly bitter but pleasing, harmonious, softly fresh and lively with acidity.
