BODEGA SOTTANO


Don Fioravante Sottano, from Veneto in Italy, settled down in Mendoza in 1890. He was a pioneer, promoting the agriculture and the industry in the region, planting vineyards to produce wine in his own winery and, later on, exporting it. He motivated others to follow in his footsteps. Nowadays, encouraged by the passion that their predecessors passed on, the three brothers: Diego, Pablo and Mauricio Sottano continue building the future of the family business on solid foundations.

2016 CLASICO CHARDONNAY

+791519 · 12x750ml

100% Chardonnay. Intense yellow color with green highlights, indicating fully ripe fruit at harvest time. Its aromas recall notes of ripe tropical fruit (pineapple, banana, passion fruit and others), along with subtle hints of coconut and vanilla from oak aging. On the palate, its elegant creaminess is well balanced by a refreshing, just-right level of acidity.
