Langhe Chardonnay DOC
Langhe Chardonnay is a white wine that is an intense straw yellow in colour with golden hues. The aroma is intense and fruity with hints of vanilla and mountain flowers. For the best vintages, the characteristics of the wine are enhanced by partial fermentation in small wooden barrels that ensure a good body and lengthy ageing. A full and enveloping taste that is smooth and round, and with a pleasant acidity that ensures superb freshness to the wine.
