2020 Biscardo Oropasso
Bottle (75 cl - Standard)
Biscardo is a family-owned vineyard located in the famous Valpolicella - a subregion of Veneto wine region in Italy. The winery was founded in 1878 and it was one of the first wine companies run by ‘Veronese’ traders. Terenzio Biscardo was one of the first promoters of wine commercial activities starting in the early 1900’s. After a century of wine-making tradition, the Biscardo family is still dedicated to creating good quality Italian wine.
Veneto is an increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Authentic Italian wines from Veneto are proudly represented by red Valpolicella wines that complement the intense Amarone and sweet Recioto. Though Veneto isn't the largest wine region in Italy it certainly produces more fine wines than the rest. Especially white wines made from Soave and sparkling wines such as Prosecco made from Glera. With such a diverse range of wines, Veneto seems quite a serious wine region, doesn't it?
Chardonnay is the most famous white wine grape variety in the world. The best Chardonnay wines are generally to be found in Burgundy (especially Chablis) and California but many good quality examples will be also found in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and parts of South America. If maturated in oak barrels the Chardonnay wine will reveal notes of vanilla, butter, smoke and hints of sweet spices. Meanwhile unoaked Chardonnay wines acquire mineral, citrusy and fruity flavours.
