Why we love it
Chardonnay is a great grape grown all over the world, not just Italy, and in Italy it is found everywhere, from Sicily to Aosta Valley, right at the bottom of the Mont Blanc. This is where this chardonnay comes from.
Made from hand picked chardonnay grapes from vineyards with very little yield and fermented on its own lees for a few months to add longevity and complexity, this chardonnay has a fruity nose with hints of white flowers and fruits; in the mouth, it is fresh, round and full with a mineral finish
The artisan who made it
A group of young winemakers decided to work together and this is how the La Source winery was born, with Stefano as its soul. Born to a wine expert, Stefano decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, after having worked his way through Italy, and in 2005, came back to his village to take the reins of the winery and its six hectares of vineyards where they produce wines such as Torrette, Chardonnay and Gamay. The region of Valle d’Aosta is famed for its mountains and the wine production is very small and limited but regardless of the limitations, its wines have characteristics that cannot be found anywhere else and they are definitely worth trying.
