Chardonnay Friuli Colli Orientali DOC La Viarte
Chardonnay is one of the most important white grape varieties in the world, born in Burgundy and arrived in Friuli in the mid-nineteenth century. Its incredible variety of aromatic components emerges in different ways depending on the soil and the climates in which it is grown.
After a manual harvest and a careful selection in the vineyard, grapes are subjected to a soft pressing and the must is left to ferment at 16-18 °C in steel tanks. The wine is refined on the lees for about 8 months, then bottled for at least 1 month.
La Viarte's Chardonnay has a bright, straw-yellow colour. It opens to the nose with aromas of ripe white fruits and hints of vanilla. Dry flavour, good acidity in the mouth; great character, pleasant aftertaste. This Friulian white wine is harmonious and persistent. We suggest serving it at 10-12 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

It is the beginning of a winery that fixes in its name the connection between dream and reality, between roots and air, between past and future: "Viarte", in Friulian, means "spring".
