Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay which over time has found its perfect balance in the Valle dei Laghi.
Vineyards: A vineyard in its full maturity of 10-15 years, located at 250m above sea level on a land of archaic origin, created over time by glaciers and the Sarca river, an integral part of the Valle dei Laghi, consisting of gravel deposits and sandy, capable of giving the wine a pleasant minerality and flavor.
Harvest: From early to mid-September, carefully following the climatic and vegetative trend of the vintage, manual collection and selection of the grapes.
Vinification & Aging: Shortly after the soft pressing of the grapes, the must is partly divided into steel where it undergoes a short fermentation with cold maceration, in terracotta amphorae where it remains in contact with the skins for the next 7 months, in small barrels of French oak where malolactic fermentation takes place. Following refinement in amphora, the wines are assembled and then further refined in steel until bottling over 12 months after the harvest and for the following 6 months in the bottle, best integrating the organoleptic characteristics developed during the various refinements.
Organoleptic Characteristics: Deep straw yellow with golden reflections that amazes at first glance. On the nose, refined and elegant, with pleasant fruity hints of Williams pears, white peach, Golden apple that combine with floral notes of jasmine and lily of the valley. Refined, almost pimping, thanks to a delicate spicy touch barely perceptible to the nose. A delicate entry in the mouth to then open up and fill the palate with all its complexity, liveliness and elegance. A very fine and persistent finish, mineral and savory, of great freshness and aromatic thickness.
Tasting & Pairing: We recommend tasting in medium-sized glasses at 8-10 ° C, after a short decantation. Able to be a perfect accompaniment to the whole meal, it expresses its best with white fish carpaccio such as sea bass and red snapper and with crudité of crustaceans, but also with white meats such as suckling pig and freshly weaned veal and with fresh and medium-aged cheeses. Not to be underestimated with fresh tagliolini and risotto with black truffle or mushrooms.
Further Aging: from 5 to 7 years, with the passage of time it further enhances its complexity, becoming softer and more pleasant on the palate. An infinite wine that allows those who taste it to appreciate its evolution over the years.
