“ Chardonnay is a multifaceted wine that speaks the language of the terroir. My Chardonnay is made with grapes from three sites at different elevations where they reach full maturity at different times.”
Chardonnay is a grape variety that is cultivated worldwide. Since the middle of the 19th century, it has also spread rapidly to South Tyrol – especially to areas of calcareous rock and scree, where it does best. The result is wines of great elegance with a long finish.
