Girlan/Cornaiano is a village of which there are historical documents since 1085; the variety of soils, the altitude which varies from 250 to 550 m a.s.l. and the particular microclimate make it an area particularly suited to the cultivation of native and international vines. However, the current cellar was founded in 1923 thanks to the foresight of 23 members, who will see the company continue to evolve, until the inauguration of new premises and more modern production facilities in 2010.
The grapes are harvested strictly by hand in crates so that only the best bunches are used. The still very fresh grapes are then destemmed and softly pressed. Fermentation takes place at low temperature in stainless steel vats. A period of refinement in stainless steel also follows before bottling and being placed on the market.
Intense straw yellow color with slight greenish reflections. On the nose hints of citrus fruits, green apple, yellow peach, hay, mountain herbs. Soft and enveloping in the mouth, then fresh and mineral. Rather long and pleasant finish.
Girlan Chardonnay is perfect for lovers of dry, fragrant and soft white wines, capable of balancing ripe and warm sensations with a remarkable freshness and ease of drinking. In combination we see it well with delicate dishes based on asparagus, fresh and medium-aged cheeses, delicate fish dishes such as steamed cod and white meat dishes.
