Glarea Chardonnay Alto Adige DOC Tramin Kellerei
The name Glarea derives from Rhaeto-Romance and means gravel, a clear reference to the particular conformation of the land from which this wine is born.
COLOUR: Straw yellow with greenish reflections
BOUQUET: On the nose, Glarea recalls the ripe fruit of banana, dried apricot and pineapple.
TASTE: On the palate it is fresh, juicy, with a certain fullness and a very strong minerality. The freshness ends in a long and harmonious finish.
It is very versatile, excellent with tasty first courses, from vegetable minestrone to spaghetti with clams; exceptional to accompany savory fish dishes or white meats with delicate flavours; also delicious with pizza, try the one with buffalo mozzarella.
A long winter postponed the awakening of the vine to early April. A drop in temperatures after budding also delayed flowering. Subsequently, the weather remained capricious with a hot June and a humid July which laid the ideal foundations for the start of the maturation. August showed its best side with sunny weeks and exceptionally low night temperatures. Despite some brief downpours at the end of September/beginning of October, the harvest, which began with a delay of approx. ten days than usual and characterized by clearly lower than average volumes, it was marked by numerous warm days and increasingly colder nights. The white wines of the 2021 vintage show depth and conquer the palate with a marked freshness and particularly delicate fruity aromas, while the full-bodied reds boast a ripe tannic structure and fresh fruity notes.
