A 100% Chardonnay grown in selected vineyards around Canelli and Aglianico, in Piedmont. Part of the wine is matured in barriques for six months, although a portion is refined in tank to preserve its freshness and fruitiness. Finally, the two batches are blended together resulting in a well balanced, round, yet fresh, wine. Malolactic fermentation is partially carried out, ensuring an elegant, creamy texture.
Pale yellow in color, with greenish reflections, Costebianche offers a fine bouquet of citrus and flowers, accented by light notes of vanilla, apple pie, and spice. This wine is soft and subtly buttery on the palate with toasty, oak nuances and a long, pleasant finish.
Suggested Food Pairings
A very versatile wine recommended with a wide array of foods from antipasti to grilled white meats. Delicious with quiche Lorraine and omelets.
