CATEGORY: Chardonnay IGT (Typical Geographical Indication) Puglia GRAPES Chardonnay 100% Selected grapes cultivated at our Maìme estate in San Pietro Vernotico (80%) and at our Bocca di Lupo estate in Minervino Murge (20%)
VINTAGE 2014 PRODUCTION: The Chardonnay grapes, picked at proper ripeness levels, were immediately pressed in our cellars. After the soft pressing, the must was chilled to a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favor a natural settling of the impurities. The clarified must was then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 61° Fahrenheit (16° centigrade) in order to fully bring out the aromatic patrimony of the grapes. The wine was then aged in stainless steel until it is bottled.
ALCOHOL: 12 % vol.
TASTING NOTES: Color Light yellow with greenish highlights. Aroma Predominantly fruity with sensations of apples and citrus fruit rind, delicately floral with notes of acacia flowers and hawthorn. Flavour Fresh on the palate and well balanced with light balsamic notes.
