Andriano

Somereto Chardonnay Alto Adige DOC

    • Description :

      The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-September from the northeastern reaches of the Andriano vineyards where the vines enjoy an early spring. This "little summer" imparts fresher and more exotic flavors in the Chardonnay grapes that characterize the Somereto wine. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks and the wine matures on the lees for six months and then is bottled and shipped.
