Chiarandà

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

Chiarandà

Golden yellow, Chiarandà 2014 opens with a fragrant and complex bouquet with evident scents of aromatic herbs (rosemary and sage) combined with scents of yellow peach on a spicy and mineral background. The palate opens with a fresh savory note and evolves into notes of fruit and sweet vanilla. A complex and enveloping white, with a long and satisfying persistence and 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.
