“Aromāta ir jūtama krīta, krama un zaļo ābolu notis. Garšā vīns ir sulīgs, viegls ar citrusu un sulīga ābola niansēm.” – Ronalds Pētersons, “Noble Wine” someljē
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety’s intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the “winemaker’s wine”.
This is one of the few wine regions of Italy that is landlocked. Schiava is considered to be the most famous red variety that produces light wines. More complex wines are produced from Lagrein grapes. Teroldego Rotaliano is one of the finest Italian wines – dense, purple, soft, leaving a pleasant berry flavor in the mouth.
