Castiglion del Bosco Chardonnay IGT

2018

In a Nutshell

Plenty of aging potential in this elegant Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

This rich, fragrant and complex wine is elegant and balanced. Partial vinification in oak enhances its varietal aromatic components and adds a hint of delicate spice.

Production Notes

The wine is fermented in stainless steel at 12°C. After fermentation, the wine is matured on its lees in French barriques for five months before bottling. After bottling, the wine spends a further three months in bottle before release.

Producer - Castiglion del Bosco

Castiglion del Bosco, one of the founding members of the ‘Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino’ established in 1967, starting producing wine in 1954. Purchased by Massimo Ferragamo in 2003, Castiglion del Bosco has been revitalised, after major investment in the vineyards and winery, and has now been restored to its position as a leading Brunello estate. The estate is located in the Val d’Orcia National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, to the north west of Montalcino, near Buonconvento. Its isolated location, away from other producers and sources of pollution, makes organic cultivation possible.
