Wine Details

La Spinetta Lidia Chardonnay Piemonte DOC

The Chardonnay Lidia is produced according to a Burgundian blueprint, seeking freshness and minerality and always keeping the alcohol in check, never above 13.5%. From the same high-altitude vineyard site as the Sauvignon, after primary and malolactic fermentations in oak, the Chardonnay spends an additional year aging in a combination of large casks and neutral barriques. Though crafted to withstand some cellaring, the Lidia is creamy and layered even at a young age, with exotic fruit aromas of pineapple and peach and enticing mineral nuances. Finishes rich and dry with a hint of butterscotch and subtle lingering fruit.

Recent press reviews


La Spinetta Lidia Chardonnay Piemonte DOC 2020

Wine Advocate (92)- "The La Spinetta 2020 Piemonte Chardonnay Lidia offers a creamy, mid-weight texture with pomelo fruit, preserved lemon, baked peach and tropical tones. The wine wraps over the palate with silky intensity. It closes with a hint of tart citrus. Lidia is aged in oak, stainless steel and bottle, with each passage lasting 12 months."


La Spinetta Lidia Chardonnay Piemonte DOC 2019

James Suckling (94)- "A medium-to full-bodied white with aromas of grilled hazelnuts, baked apples, lemon curd, pie crust and buttered toast. Excellent energy and acidity, with a lightly buttery texture and subtle toastiness. Elegent expression. Drink now or hold."


La Spinetta Lidia Chardonnay Piemonte DOC 2019

Wine Advocate (93)- "The 2019 Piemonte Chardonnay Lidia shows a pretty golden hue and mid-weight texture. That natural structure supports apricot, baked apple, spice and toasted nut. Packaged in a heavy glass bottle, the wine imparts smooth layers of mature fruit that drive a long and elegant finish."
