The Chardonnay Collio DOC from Aziende Agricole Livon is an intense, pale straw yellow with greenish reflections in the glass. Elegant and fascinating, a fragrant bouquet unfolds on the nose with aromas of Golden Delicious apples, ripe peach, followed by bread crust and hazelnuts. On the palate, Livon's Chardonnay from Collio is round and velvety, fresh and well-structured, dry, with a long, fruity finish.
Vinification of Livon's Chardonnay Collio DOC
The grapes for this fine, single-varietal Chardonnay grow in the vineyards in the municipality of Dolegna del Collio, on clayey marl soils of oceanic origin. The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand, cold macerated in the horizontal press for eight hours and the must is then clarified by natural decantation. The subsequent fermentation takes place entirely in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18°C and remains in the same containers for 5 months to mature at a constant temperature. After bottling, the wine remains in the bottle for some time before being released for sale. This Chardonnay from Collio can be stored for 4 to 5 years.
Dining recommendations for the Chardonnay Collio from Livon
Serve this elegant white wine from Friuli as a second wine after an aperitif, with risotto with young vegetables and herbs, or with delicate fish dishes. After a period of ageing, it also goes well with more flavorful pasta or rice dishes and with white meat and poultry. Best served at 11° to 12°C.
