Chiarandà

A Chardonnay with a Mediterranean soul, elegant and long-lived

Chiarandà

Chiarandà 2011 is golden yellow. The nose is characterized by an ample and varied bouquet: the base is that of yellow pulp fruit, combined with delicate hints of white flowers, completed by notes of spice (vanilla and gray pepper) and aromatic herbs (sage). Long and persistent, the palate perfectly reflects the nose, enlivened by a fresh savory and mineral note. A white with great personality and elegance, with great aging potential.

Artistic label

The wine made its debut in 1992 as Chiarandà del Merlo from the names of the two vineyards where the Ansonica and Chardonnay grapes were grown. Ten years later the name has been simplified to Chiarandà and the label has been enriched with a female figure that suggests complexity and refinement.
