From: Piemonte, Italy
Note: Luna Agosto = August moon. This is a reference to the time the family harvests the grapes for this wine: the old moon of August in September.
Taste: Langhe Chardonnay is a thing and it’s time to get into it. These wines have it all the depth of this grape that we have come to know but with guardrails in the form of acidity not letting the wine be steered off course. The result is a rich white wine with bracing acidity showing all kinds of aromas from lemon curd, peach and pear, to lean honeysuckle and jasmine. Then the acidity kicks in heightening the refreshing saline quality and wet rock vibes. The alcohol is a perfect 13.5%. Any more and it would lose all the things.
Pairing: Unoaked Chardonnay (in general and very true for this wine as well) pairs well with sushi and shellfish, like langoustines, clams and mussels. It is also ideal with flaky white fish. In addition, it’s great with appetizers, alongside cheese puffs (gougères), olives, and a number of vegetable-based dishes. Today, we’re sharing a recipe that’s fall-inspired, but so good that you’ll want to enjoy this all year long.
