L’Ardenza

Our Mondeuse in purity

DESCRIPTION

One of our most special wines: a pure Mondeuse.

L’Ardenza is a Mondeuse in purity, a variety from the Haute Savoie, with a ruby ​​red color. On the nose a fresh vegetal note introduces intense and fruity hints of marasca, cherry and blueberry, which blend well with the pleasant and elegant balsamic, mineral and spicy notes. On the palate it is pleasantly fat, supported by high quality thick tannins and a pleasant sapid note. The finish is long and very persistent.
