Description

This white wine made its debut in 1992 as "Chiarandà del Merlo", from the names of the two vineyards where the Ansonica and Chardonnay grapes were grown. Ten years later the name has been simplified to Chiarandà and the label has been enriched with a female figure that suggests complexity and refinement. Chiarandà perfectly interprets its Mediterranean soul, made from Chardonnay grapes cultivated in Contessa Entellina Estate.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, at a temperature of 14-16 °C, then the wine ages partially matures in oak (first and second passage Burgundy barriques and tonneaux), for 5 to 6 months on its noble lees, partially in small cement vats; finally it is fined in the bottle for about 24 months. This is the ideal wine to live an intense sensorial experience, for a moment of glamour, to enjoy beauty.

TASTING NOTES

Golden yellow colour, Chiarandà opens with a fragrant and complex bouquet with evident scents of aromatic herbs (rosemary and sage) combined with scents of yellow peach on a spicy and mineral background. The palate opens with a fresh savory note and evolves into notes of fruit and sweet vanilla. A complex and enveloping white, with a long and satisfying persistence and great aging potential. We suggest to serve it at 11-13 °C, uncorking the bottle 30 minutes before serving.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

An ideal partner for great occasions like wedding receptions or romantic dinners. Its personality and elegance perfectly pair with lobster, creamy vegetable soup and smoked fish. We suggest it also with roast quail and aged cheeses.
