Overview

Elio's commitment to chardonnay starts at his harvest. Since 1990, normally in the first 10 days of September Elio and his team descend into the beautiful vineyards of Gavarini. This small 1.3 hectare parcel lies at 400 meters above sea level and consists of 4500 plants per hectare. Annual production is approximately 500 cases per year. This Chardonnay will reveal its character as it slowly evolves in the glass. This is regarded as one of the best examples of Piemontese Chardonnay.
