Pietragrande is an intriguing and attractive Chardonnay - made even more precious by a dash of Sauvignon - that charms one with the elegance of its aromas and its delicate persistence. It is the result of careful vinification, designed to highlight Trentino’s vocation for healthy, sustainable mountain viticulture.
Grapes: 80% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon, Incrocio Manzoni and Pinot Blanc.
Production area: Mountainside vineyards in the finest zones of Trentino.
Type of soil: Mainly sandy, with a high proportion of rocks.
Training system: One-armed Trentino Pergola (4000 vines per hectare) and Guyot (4500 vines per hectare).
Fermentation temperature: Temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, using selected yeasts.

Tasting notes: Brilliant yellow. Nose fruity and mellow on the nose, it displays fresh sensations of white flowers that alternate with notes of apples and pears and hints of aromatic herbs. It is lively, refreshing and tangy; mouth-filling, rounded fruit on the front palate gives way to appealing citrus-like notes and mineral hints on the finish.
