Chardonnay grape and Chardonnay Wine

This international vine, grown throughout Italy, is characterised by medium-sized, pyramidal clusters and golden-yellow medium-sized grapes.

The variety grown in Abruzzo is typically cultivated with the sun-shade technique, so as to ensure well-balanced ripening and to optimise quality.

Wine organoleptic features:

Colour Brilliant yellow
Aroma A mixture of exotic fruit
Taste Dry, bold, with good structure and correct acidity

Given its many potential uses, the Chardonnay is marketed as IGT ready for consumption , though it can be blended according to clients’ requests.

This wine is also suitable for ageing and for producing a sparkling wine. Its typical alcohol content ranges between 12 and 13.5% vol.
