Description Vinification in stainless steel and partially in wood for this elegant Chardonnay, characterized by a good structure and at the same time a pleasant freshness, with a note of wood which harmonizes but does not overwhelm the typicity of the grape variety.
Vinification Traditional white vinification. The grapes are gently pressed with pneumatic press. Static decantation of the must. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature (18°C) and partially in new barriques; long rest on lees.
Tasting notes Straw-yellow colour with golden glares. Good acidity. Typical aroma of freshly roasted bread, captivating and full, with undernotes of pippin apples. The influence of wood is elegant and well integrated.
Food pairing Very good with creamed vegetable soups, ravioli and all types of stuffed pasta, pasta with creamy sauces, second courses based on white meat. Very nice with dishes using mushrooms.
