Obtained exclusively from Chardonnay, a French vine (Champagne and Burgundy), imported at the end of the 1800s, which was initially confused with Pinot Bianco, so much so that according to reference of 1901, it was not catalogued separately until the post war period. Chardonnay has been present at the Gradis’ciutta estate since 1974, adapting to the clay marne, amidst the ponca and opoca soils from which these grapes come.

As an aperitif or to accompany antipasti, dried soups in broth, simple plates of eggs or fish. However, it marries well with simple entrées of white meats.
