Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety originated in the Burgundy and is now grown wherever wine is produced and is an important component of many sparkling wines, including for example Champagne. Chardonnay is a grape that happily reflects the terroir in which it’s grown and also gleefully responds to a variety of vinification techniques.

Chardonnay Doc Piave “Il Tralcetto” boasts an impressive range of flavours, with note of apple, banana and crusty bread and it reveals a delicate and elegant nose.
