Chiarandà

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

Chiarandà

Golden yellow, Chiarandà 2012 confirms itself as a wine with great personality and elegance. The nose offers an ample and fragrant bouquet with notes of white flowers (elderflower) combined with those of dry fruit (peanuts) and flint. Long and persistent, the palate perfectly reflects the nose, enlivened by a mineral note. An important Mediterranean white 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.
