Food Pairings for Rizzi Chardonnay Langhe DOC
Cantina Rizzi has long been revered as one of the best red wine estates in the Trieso district of Barbaresco. But, Ernesto Dellapiana, the founder of the winery, was not content to rely solely on tradition. In 1978 he was one of a handful of pioneers that experimented with Chardonnay in the Langhe. Through excellent vineyard management Ernest identified a specific vineyard that he believed would be conducive to Chardonnay production. He named the vineyard “Speranza”, Italian for “Hope” and with careful attention in the cellar he has developed a clean, fresh, style that personifies the single vineyard name. The grapes are harvested in late August or early September and are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged and stirred on the lees before filtering and bottling. It is released in the spring following the vintage.
Rizzi Chardonnay has a straw-yellow color with hints of green and gold. The aroma is rich with flowers, tropical fruits, banana and hints of vanilla. On the palate it is fresh and clean with good structure and firm acidity.
