Description

Classic Langhe Chardonnay from the Piemonte hills, crisp and refreshing with a light creaminess to round out the palate. On the nose, there’s pear and custard notes with floral aromas. There’s no oak used here but the wine is kept for 4 months on the lees after fermentation, to fill out the palate and provide a soft, silky texture and an extended finish.

Proprietor Valter Bosio: “I have four passions in my life: my family, my dog Leda, wine and hunting for truffles. Truffle hunting is a tradition in Piedmont and my dog Leda is known for unearthing these highly-prized tubers. This wine is made as a tribute to her.”

This wine is the perfect match for chicken and creamy pasta dishes, or seafood in buttery sauces.
