Product description

GRAPES 100% Chardonnay. PRODUCTION AREA North-east of Italy. SOIL Alluvial very rich in clay. CLIMATE Mild, with very few rain showers and a high summer temperature which allows the grapes to ripen perfectly. DENSITY OF THE PLANTATION AND TRAINING SYSTEM 4.000-8.400 vines per hectare trained with guyot system. VINEYARD MANAGEMENT To obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes, beyond the normal vineyard management, we carry out summer pruning and careful leaf thinning. Furthermore, the yield is kept very low in order to produce grapes rich in body and aroma. HARVEST Beginning of September, when the grapes are very well ripe but they still have a good acidity level. VINIFICATION Destemming and crushing of the grapes, soft pressing of the grapes, cool static clarification and fermentation exclusively with wild yeasts at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats at 18° C. Then the wine refines for several months on its noble lees in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The lees are frequently mixed in order to increase the thickness and the smoothness of the wine. SECOND FERMENTATION ALCOHOL 12-13% by vol. (it depends on the vintage). TASTING CHARACTERISTICS Intense straw yellow colour. It expresses the typical aroma of this variety with hints of exotic and citrus fruits. It has a wide and balanced taste. SERVING TEMPERATURE 8-10°C. FOOD MATCHING Ideal as an aperitif, with fish dishes, lobster and spaghetti with seafood. STORAGE In a cool and dark place, keeping the bottle in a horizontal position. Its structure and complexity enable the wine to improve during maturation in the bottle, which can last up to 5 years, reaching the top after 2-3 years from the harvest
