Chardonnay

The most important white varietal of the world and one of the historical varieties in our vineyard. We search its purest and real expression: neither flabby nor sugary, but is charismatic and proud of its Nordic origins.
Our queen of reinvention: no matter to be our still or sparkling wine, never looses its timeless elegance, sensual finesse and well-defined structure.
