Chardonnay

TRENTINO DOC

Chardonnay is a grape of French origin, introduced over a hundred years ago in the Lavis and Pressano vineyards. As a young but complex wine, it possesses a distinctive elegance and freshness. Pale yellow in colour with traces of green, it has a pleasing bouquet and fruity notes of Golden apple and pineapple. The flavour is full and well balanced.
