“Vīnam raksturīga gatavu persiku, sviesta un maizes aromāts, kurā ir maigas citrusa nianses. Garša ir sabalansēta, svaiga, apaļa un sulīga. Gara, svaiga pēcgarša.” – 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 region is known for its white wines. They are produced from a variety of grapes, and this diversity distinguishes the region from other wine regions. Winemakers use non-traditional Italian varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Bianco, as well as the very “Italian” Pinot Grigio and local Picolit. Many wine critics agree that Friuli is the best white wine region in Italy.
