  • Vinification Vinification and maturation: soft pressing of the grapes. Two-thirds fermented in barriques from the first (new) to the third passage. After fermentation, the wine remains in wood for about 9 months in contact with the fine lees and undergoes periodic "batonage". The remaining third ferments and matures in stainless steel tanks. In the ninth month, the two batches are blended. This is followed by a further three months or so in stainless steel to amalgamate the two wines. Bottled, it matures for 4 to 6 months before being put on the market.

    "Strangè" Lange DOC Chardonnay 2022
  • Langhe DOC Chardonnay Stranghè proposed here by Piazzo Comm. Armando represents a bold foray into the Piedmontese wine tradition. It is no coincidence that 'Stranghè' comes from the Piedmontese dialect and means 'foreigner'. It is made from 100% Chardonnay, which, although not an indigenous grape variety, has found ideal soil in the Langhe. The result is a label of great personality and complexity. The grapes come from the Cicchetta vineyard, in the heart of the Langhe, where the special characteristics of the microclimate are ideal for creating a wine of great structure and refinement. Harvested by hand in the first ten days of September, when they reach perfect ripeness, the grapes undergo careful vinification, partly in French oak barriques of first, second and third passage, and partly in stainless steel. The wine then remains in contact with the fine lees for about 9 months, undergoing periodic bâtonnage, which lends complexity and structure. This is followed by ageing in stainless steel and a further period of rest in the bottle before release. In the glass, Stranghè has a reassuringly intense straw yellow colour with golden reflections. The nose opens with an elegant and complex bouquet, with hints of ripe yellow-fleshed fruit, exotic fruits, buttery and vanilla notes. The taste is full and enveloping. In the mouth it reveals a perfect balance between structure and finesse, while freshness and savouriness blend harmoniously with a long and persistent finish, enriched by slight hints of spice. Ideal with warm seafood hors d'oeuvres, first and second courses based on fish or white meat. Also to be tried with medium-aged cheeses.

    The valorisation of Nebbiolo and its ageing potential is one of the founding objectives of the Piazzo family's Alba company. Something that might seem obvious today but that at the time, we are in the 1960s, turned out to be a very important intuition. Those were the times, in fact, when Nebbiolo was preferred to other more sought-after and therefore more profitable varieties. The cultivated estates were located in different areas of the Langhe and Roero, with estate vineyards ranging from Barbaresco to Barolo, including the most typical varieties of the area. Over the years, under the leadership first of the founder Armando and his wife Gemma, then of their daughter Marina and her husband Franco, and finally of grandchildren Simone and Marco, the Piazzo Comm. Armando winery has made respect for the territory, the dissemination of Piedmontese culture and the continuous search for improvement its cornerstones. This has resulted in strongly territorial wines that have not struggled to achieve excellent results on all the world's markets.
