Il Cascinone Campo Fiorito Chardonnay Piemonte DOC

2015

In a Nutshell

A great all rounder; ripe and textural white from north west Italy.

Tasting Notes

A delicate nose of ripe stone fruit, the palate is well balanced and creamy. In addition to the ripe peach, minerality adds to the broad mouthfeel and clean acidity. A particularly good vintage of this wine!

Production Notes

Produced on the 60 ha estate of Il Cascinone, in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. Grapes sourced from just 5 ha of land are used for this wine. Planted in 1998, the north east facing slopes help to ensure the grapes don't get too much heat. Grapes are then typically harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September. 10% of the wine was fermented and aged in French oak barriques for added richness and complexity.
