From the Ca del Buc vineyard site in Castagnole Lanze, the Chardonnay vines are now 35 years of age having been planted in place of an old vineyard of Grignolino in the early 1980s.  Vinified and aged exclusively in stainless steel, the Piemonte Chardonnay is brisk and clean but rather full-bodied as it naturally achieves 13% alcohol annually.  The wine is bottled in the spring of the year following harvest then given several months of bottle age before being shipped to the USA.
