Pio Cesare - L'Altro Chardonnay 2022

4.8

750 ml
  • The Other Side of Elegance


    Pio Cesare L'Altro Chardonnay, a distinguished white wine from Piedmont, Italy, offers a unique and elegant experience in the realm of Chardonnay.


    The name "L'Altro," meaning "the other" in Italian, signifies its distinction from Pio Cesare's first-ever produced Chardonnay, Piodilei. This wine captures the essence of the Piedmontese terroir, presenting a delightful alternative to traditional Chardonnay styles.


    L'Altro Chardonnay is known for its heavily oaked profile, with pronounced banana notes and a lack of zest, leading to a heavy, slightly awkward character. While it offers texture, it may not have the zestiness or brightness typically associated with Chardonnay.


    The 2021 vintage of Pio Cesare L'Altro Chardonnay is rated highly, performing better than any other year for this wine and placing it among the top 5% of all wines in the world according to Vivino​.


    Produced by the renowned Pio Cesare winery, L'Altro Chardonnay is a testament to the winery's long-standing tradition and expertise in winemaking. The winery, established in 1881, is known for its commitment to quality and the expression of local terroir in its wines.


    Pio Cesare's L'Altro Chardonnay is a versatile wine that can complement a variety of dishes. Its oaky and rich profile pairs well with rich, creamy dishes, grilled seafood, and poultry.


    The wine is best enjoyed when served chilled, allowing its unique characteristics to shine.
