Tormaresca Pietrabianca Chardonnay Castel del Monte DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Well-integrated oak in this premium Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

A complex and nuanced nose with notes of both citrus fruit and tropical fruit in addition to light floral sensations and vanilla. The palate shows more of this fruit with light touches of oak and a fresh, mineral finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were given a soft pressing, and the must transferred into stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 10° centigrade to assist a natural static settling of the impurities. The Chardonnay went into small barrels where it fermented at controlled temperature. The wine then aged on its fine lees in oak barrels, during which time it went through a complete malolactic fermentation. The Fiano, instead, was fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to fully bring out its notes of freshness and crispness. In January the Chardonnay left the barrels for stainless steel tanks where it was blended with the Fiano.
