Wine Description

The wine is a light straw yellow with slight green highlights in color and expresses rich, complex and intense aromas. The palate is supple but vibrant, elegant and well-structured, and is characterized by the classic mineral sensations and delicate note of hazelnut butter.

Wine Analysis

Blend: 
Chardonnay with a small percentage of Grechetto
Aging: 
After a brief cold maceration (4 hours), the must went into stainless steel tanks before going into oak barrels. Three months later, the Chardonnay went back into stainless steel tanks to be blended with the Grechetto (which had been fermented separately in stainless steel). After bottling, the wine was aged for several months before release.
Alcohol: 
12.5%
