A chic crisp chardonnay: Jermann
Galileo Galilei wrote: "Wine is sunlight, held together by water" - and what a fitting way to decribe this chic Chardonnay from Jermann.
The Venezia Giulia IGT is made with 100% Chardonnay grapes. It is straw-yellow in colour with shades of green. The aroma is intense, fruity and aromatic. There are notes of banana and golden delicious apple with a very balanced flavour, naturally rich and a wonderful persistence. Very elegant.
This wine is super as an aperitif and goes excellently well with any fish dish and prepared vegetables.
Jermann is the story of a passion that came from far away.
In 1881 Anton Jermann, the founder, left the Austrian wine-growing region of Burgenland and later the vines of Slovenia to put down roots in Friuli Venezia Giulia. It was here that he continued to grow his winery business and from the 1970s Silvio Jermann combined his knowledge with imagination and achieved great success that he never dreamed possible, and is respected in wine circles, both in Italy and worldwide.
Today the Jermann estate extends over 200 hectares of which 160 hectares are vineyards and 20 hectares are used to grow seeds and horticultural crops. This is a company that interacts with the world every day, but its greatest attention is always reserved for the things that make a wine great.
