Langhe Bianco DOC Tamard́

“Tamardì” is a rare, old Piedmontese term once used by people here to express surprise when they came across something unexpected. With its capacity for producing both excellent whites and outstanding reds though, the Roero has now been recognised for many years as one of the very best wine-growing areas in Piedmont. This particular white has been crafted since 1995 from a selection of the finest Chardonnay (70%) and Sauvignon (30%) grapes grown in the Roero, which are used to produce a wine that is capable of improving over time. As the two varietals are ready for harvesting at slightly different times, they are vinified separately in barriques, where they spend six months on their own yeasts, with gradually less frequent bâtonnages being performed. Following on from this period in wood, “Tamardì” is bottled and cellared for a further 10 months before being released onto the market.

Colour: bright, intense straw yellow.
Nose: good intensity of aromas, ranging from the classic initial undertones of apple to its more hallmark hints of wild peaches, encapsulated overall in an elegant and harmonious bouquet.
Taste: round, docile character immediately evident on entry, with fruity fullness perfectly balanced with crispness; body and substance are then expressed in a long, full, lingering finish.
Pairings: with its full-bodied, perfumed character, it is recommend for serving with grilled shellfish, or with more simple dishes like ravioli in a butter-sage sauce.
