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 itâ€™s grown and also gleefully responds to a variety of vinification techniques.
Chardonnay Doc Piave â€œIl Tralcettoâ€ boasts an impressive range of flavours, with note of apple, banana and crusty bread and it reveals a delicate and elegant nose.
