Chardonnay Graf Alto Adige DOC 2020 - Cantina Merano

This grape variety is a true champion, capable of adapting to practically any conditions, whether in terms of soil or climate, and in any case of producing wines with an unmistakable character. Cantina Merano succeeds perfectly in making the most of this excellent raw material to produce a complex and long-lived Chardonnay. It is no coincidence that only grapes from selected vineyards in Marlengo, Cermes and Lana are used to produce this wine. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in large oak and stainless steel barrels, followed by a slow maturation on the lees with partial malolactic fermentation. The result is a wine characterised by a beautiful straw-yellow colour, with an inviting aroma reminiscent of pineapple and bananas. In the mouth it reveals a good sapidity and an elegant and harmonious character. An extremely versatile wine, it goes well with fish and seafood dishes. Thanks to its good concentration, this mountain Chardonnay also goes well with white meats and tasty risottos. Good today, it is a wine with discreet ageing potential. Well stored in the cellar, it can serenely mature for more than 5 years.

Sometimes a few numbers are enough to understand everything. In the case of Cantina Merano, based in Marlengo, on the hills overlooking the city, the numbers are simple. Between 300 and 900 metres above sea level, the vineyards enjoy perfect exposure and the beneficial temperature range that every wine lover seeks like the Holy Grail. Over 1940 hours of sunshine per year are enjoyed by the vineyards here. There are 16 grape varieties in the vineyards, which produce 60% of the red wines (quality) and 40% of the white wines. Of these varieties, three are indigenous to the region and produce wines with an unmistakable character. The winery produces a total of 1.3 million bottles a year. The secret? Hard manual work, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, to ensure careful and gentle processing of each grape variety. In the cellar, in particular, tradition and innovation are combined with expertise, foresight and care. The philosophy that guides every choice is that of "Less is more", because the character of the grapes must still be recognisable in the glass of wine.
