Bortoluzzi Chardonnay Venezia Giulia IGT
100% Chardonnay. Deep golden yellow, intense bouquet of ripe fruit, with a very pleasing, never excessive vein of toasted oak. Mellow, structured palate with well-integrated acidity.
“For the Bortoluzzi family sensitivity is important, as is tradition. You must always be forward-looking in order to improve, but without forgetting what history and experience have taught you.“
