The Details

In a Nutshell

A modern, fresh and approachable style of unoaked Chardonnay from this progressive producer.

Tasting Notes

This shows crisp fresh citrus fruit on the nose with a hint of pineapple. On the palate it is rounded and delicate, with ripe stone fruit characters, minerality in the background, a lemony finish and fresh acidity.

Production Notes

Cultivated in the Monferatto hills in the south of the province of Asti, Piemonte on southwest facing vineyards at altitudes between 250 and 400m. The soils here are a rich combination of limestone and clay. Piemonte low Guyot trellis system is used for vines.

Vinification & maturation - 100% tank fermented under temperature control with 3 months on the lees.

Producer - Araldica Vini Piemontesi

Araldica is Piemonte’s largest and most progressive co-operative yet retains a small, family run company feel, thanks to the inspired guidance of winemaker/manager Claudio Manera (whose father Livio was the co-op’s first winemaker in the fifties) and his wife Lella, also a winemaker and in charge of Quality Control.
