Producer

Le Monde is a historical winery founded in 1970 in the sleepy village of the same name. With its 45 hectares of vineyards, it represents one of the reference producers in the territory known as Grave del Friuli. It was taken over in 2008 by the Maccan family, and the winery was subsequently entrusted to the management of the young and enthusiastic Alex, who restored the 18th century historical villa and designed the image of the new vinification cellar and winery. Today Le Monde can be considered a new generation winery not only from a technological point of view but also with regards to its innovative way of interpreting wine, where tradition finds the right combination with modernity and design elegance. The wines are highly rated, achieving the top rating in the Italian wine bible ‘Gambero Rosso’.Vignetti Le Monde is considered a `cru` since, unlike the other areas falling under the registered DO, it is characterised by calcerous clay soils which adds to the richness and longevity of the wine.
Tasting Notes
A bright gold in colour, this Chardonnay has a ripe stone fruit character on the nose. The palate is fresh and vibrant with notes of apricot, mango and apple on the palate combined with a distict minerality from the calcerous clay soils of the vineyard. The ripe fruit notes are balanced perfectly with an elegant acidity and a creamy mouthfeel from spending 6 months on the fine lees.
Food
Best served with soups, risotto, white meat and fish dishes.
