Lake Garda white wine - Garda DOC Chardonnay

This lake Garda white wine is obtained from the flower must of selected Chardonnay grapes. Cultivated on a clayish soil, in modern vineyards, the grapes evolve in a well structured wine, with nice and elegant aromas and a bright yellow colour.
It is bottled, after a few months in stainless steel tanks, thus keeping the freshness and the typical fruity and floral aromas.
