Diàol Chardonnay


Selections from Cantina Lavis stem from the “wine zoning project” that has represented the Cantina’s underlying philosophy for over 30 years. These unique wines are products of excellence grown in selected areas, in particularly suitable vineyards. This Chardonnay is the best expression of the typical zones where these vines are grown. A golden colour in the glass with traces of green; scents of golden plum, nectarine and delicate hints of vanilla alternate to provide a complex aroma. A tense and lively flavour, whose acidity supports the well-structured body. Its lingering bouquet stirs memories of ripe fruit and vanilla sugar.
