2015 Chardonnay "CharnĂ³" (La Casaccia)

La Casaccia, Chardonnay "Charo", Piemonte, Italy 2015

{organic} 100% Chardonnay

DELICATE YET RICH; FULL OF FLOWERS & FRUIT

From a hand-carved stone cellar beneath a crappy-looking house (that's what La Casaccia means, in a family-friendly sense) in Monferrato, the familigia Rava produces this beauty: subtle in its aromas, light and delicate and fresh, evocative of Macon-Villages. Time spent aging on the lees provides richness, while retaining mouthwatering acidity. It's a bouquet of wild flowers, a plate of freshly sliced melon, apple, and apricots. CharnĂ³? CharYES!

Serving suggestion: The Ravas suggest "fresh cheeses and all kinds of fish". How about mozzarella, tetilla, & toma, w/ crackers, dried apricots & fig jam, followed by chirashi don (a bowl of sushi rice topped with sashimi)?
