Alto Adige Chardonnay Riserva DOC 2019

About this wine

Chardonnay Freienfeld, a blend of the best Chardonnay grapes, is produced only in years with optimal weather conditions. Originality and cultivation in harmony with nature are the guidelines in the vineyard.

This Chardonnay is characterized by stylish opulence with lots of exotic fruit and delicate, choice roast aromas. The complex bouquet is reminiscent of ripe citrus fruits, coconut with a hint of vanilla. Extract and acidity form an appealing balance. Round on the palate, with velvety fruit and pleasantly integrated tannins. A multifaceted, elegant Chardonnay with great ageing potential.
Chardonnay FREIENFELD: the charming one.
