Umbria Chardonnay IGT
A white wine with great structure. Intense straw yellow with alluring golden reflections, rich and elegant scents of orange blossom, banana, peach, pineapple and sweet, light notes of oak, vanilla and butter with delicate hints of coconut and white chocolate; it opens with refined flavour, fresh fruit and sapid, delicate citrus acidity; a long finish with excellent persistence.

- anecdotesProud of its Umbrian nature, Aurente has a strong and sunny temperament. The name recalls the preciousness of gold, both in its color and in the concentration of aromas and flavour. The Grechetto grape is fundamental to round out the Chardonnay, accentuating this wine’s Umbrian character.
