Piemonte Chardonnay DOC

"Fosche"
Winemaking Philosophy

The grape variety of origin is Chardonnay, an international variety which has found favourable soils and exposures. 

After soft crushing and a short period of cold maceration, the free run must ferments at a temperature of 18-20 °C to enhance the varietal aromas. 
This is followed by malolactic fermentation and several months' ageing on lees to improve the product's complexity and longevity It is then blended with 5-15% of wine from the previous vintage aged in barriques, and bottled.
