Denominazione di origine controllata.
This wine comes from the Maddalena vineyard, consisting of marls, sedimentary rocks with superficial limestone layers and deep clays, without alluvial deposits. The presence of fossils and other residues of marine micro-organisms testifies how the sea once arrived here. A pure Chardonnay, which has its own natural habitat in the marly soil and perhaps for this reason it’s had its presence in Monferrato since 1800. Long life and satisfying, it represents the essence of the terroir.
