In a Nutshell
Fantastic modern-style Chardonnay.
Single-variety Chardonnay whose characteristics which have made it so famous which here emerge very clearly. Starting from the richness of its deep clear golden but transparent colour one imagines the pleasing contrast of creaminess and crispness in the taste. It is indeed a soft white wine underlaid by a refreshing acid vein which accompanies each mouthful. A slight mineral suggestion combines harmoniously with the flavour of ripe yellow peaches, acacia honey and marzipan and with some peaty, cereal and toasted aromas which precede the powerful balanced finish.
After crushing and destemming, light pressing and static sedimentation at low temperature and inoculation with selected yeasts.Fermentation takes place in 225 litres Allier oak barrels (half new and half one year old) at 20 ° C for 15 days and maturation then takes place in 50% new barriques for 10/11 months and for a year for the remainder.
For five centuries and through seventeen generations, the family has been involved with the course of agricultural evolution in the complex land of Sicily, with an approach always inclined to openness and innovation.
