Chiarandà

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

Chiarandà

Golden yellow, Chiarandà 2013 offers a fragrant and complex bouquet, with fruity notes of bergamot and yellow apple combined with notes of aromatic herbs (rosemary) and spices (vanilla and white pepper) on a mineral background. Savory and fresh, the palate perfectly reflects the nose. It finishes with a long and satisfying persistence. 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.
