Chardonnay di Torgiano 'Aurente' Lungarotti 2018

The Chardonnay of Torgiano 'Aurente' by Lungarotti is a white wine that recalls its brilliant color from the name, which at times recalls the gold and opulence of its generous and creamy features. Sinking 6 months in barrique, releases hints of tropical fruits and yellow flowers. At the sip it is delicate, it is soft, ample and fresh

To enjoy it at its best

Serving temp.
8°-10°C
Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
