Winery: Ca' del Baio
Locale: Treiso (Barbaresco)
Appellation: Langhe Chardonnay
In a few words: This fresh and fruity wine will remind you fondly of summer - no matter the weather!
Site: Calcareous marls mixed with high percentages of sand.
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay harvested in early September.
Fermentation and Aging: Grapes undergo soft pressing and vinification is carried out inside temperature-controlled steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is not performed, in order to preserve the wine’s fresh and young characteristics.
Notes: Straw yellow in color with greenish highlights; delicately floral and fruity, with notes of citrus and exotic fruits. Dry and cool on the palate, with a long finish and a slightly mineral aftertaste. Makes an excellent aperitif if served fresh. Goes well with meat and vegetable hors-d’oeuvres, grilled and baked fish, fresh cheeses.
