Bricco dei Guazzi Chardonnay 2018



Stony scents of chalk and seashell intermingle with fruitier nectarine and pear notes. The firm palate is bracing and dry, with textbook cool-climate Chardonnay spirited acidity. Invigorating and brisk, with beautiful finesse, balance and poise. Crafted from 100% Chardonnay grown on marl-limestone soils in the premium, misty, northern Italian region of Piemonte, and produced in the style of a fine Chablis.

Great with oysters, fish and chips or moules marinières.

Producer: Bricco dei Guazzi

A few kilometres from Casale Monferrato in the small Piemontese village of Olivola, stands Azienda (wine farm) Bricco dei Guazzi. The property stands on top of a hill ('bric' in the local dialect), encircled by 30 hectares of vineyards, and includes a century-old cedar tree (the company's symbol), restaurant and bustling wine resort. With just over a hundred or so inhabitants, it boasts a superb view of the vineyards nestling among the Monferrato hills, sketched by the hand of the vine dressers.

Wine growing has been the vibrant heart of Bricco dei Guazzi right from its early 14th century beginning. Here, each piece of land with its particular micro-environment and personality joins with a variety of grape to create a unique wine, amongst them Gavi DOCG, Chardonnay, Barbera, La Presidenta and Albarossa, all expressive of their place of origin.
