Crevoglio Chardonnay, Borgo Maragliano, 2017
Crevoglio Chardonnay, Borgo Maragliano 2017
Although the estate still carries the name of father Giuseppe Galliano, nowadays it is his son Carlo and his wife Silvia who take care of the whole enterprise. Cellars and family house are part of an attractive old borgo, from which terrace you have a great view over 7,5 hectares vineyards of Moscato.
Loazzolo, on the foothills of the Langhe, offers a combination of sandy soil plus the right altitude (400 metres) that make it the perfect white wine environment, according to Carlo.
Apart from Moscato, they also grow some Chardonnay and Pinot Nero.
Until 1988, father Giuseppe grew grapes which were traditionally sold to the bigger estates during the harvest. In that year however, halfway the harvest, that demand for grapes dried up instantly, the right incentive to start thinking about vinifying himself.
In 1990, Carlo came to join his father and ever so many harvests later he realizes they signify ever so many different experiences. In short, that there is still so much to learn and improve.
Intense, fresh and elegant. A dry, medium-to-full-bodied wine with moderate acidity and alcohol. You will find lovely notes of apple, lemon, papaya and pineapple with a persistent finish.
GOES BEST WITH
Pasta, shellfish, mature and hard cheese, lean fish, cured meat.
