The Chardonnay grapes are sourced from Maso Toresella in Valle dei Laghi. The grapes are harvested by hand, then undergo selection, and are gently pressed. After a period of skin contact (10 hours), the must is fermented in oak barriques, where the wine is then left to mature for 6 months. After bottling the wine is refined in the bottle for a further 6 months.
Fresh and vibrant nose with notes of lemon zest, Cox's apple and lightly toasty, savoury notes. On the palate there are complex citrus and stone fruit characters, and fine well-integrated spicy oak, balanced by fresh and crisp acidity. All leading to an appealing, lingering finish.
Baked or grilled fish dishes - such as swordfish with capers and cherry tomatoes, or red snapper baked in foil.
