The whites of Piedmont are some of the crispest, most refreshingly mineral in the world. And whilst Gavi might grab the headlines, there are absolute gems to be mined in the right places, as this stunning Chardonnay blend proves.
70% Chardonnay is blended with 30% rare local speciality, Nascetta, adding deliciously aromatic notes to Chardonnay’s crisp minerality
High altitude planting means the grapes are able to ripen slowly, whilst vinification entirely without oak makes for a steely, Chablis-esque freshness
The family-run Braida winery has been highly praised for their reds and whites by Decanter, Wine Spectator and the Wine Advocate
Tasting note: Highly aromatic bouquet with white flowers, green orchard fruits and a smatter of white pepper. Refreshing acidity comes from a seam of citrus on the palate, underscored by more floral notes and a touch of nectarine.
