Production area

Chardonnay is grown on the hillside vineyards of  Cornaiano at an altitudes ranging from 450 to 500 m above sea level, and from the vineyards located in the Bassa Atesina in well aired vineyards. The area in which they are grown is rich in minerals, the result of ice age sedimentation.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Gentle pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature and aging on the lees in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes & food matching

The cultivation of the Chardonnay grapes has a long tradition in Cornaiano. Their dry, particularly fine and delicate aroma, with a full-bodied, elegant and lively palate make Chardonnay a much-appreciated aperitif wine and it is also served with hors d’oeuvres, fish and white meats.
