Features & Pairings suggestions

Vinification

Vinification

The grapes are harvested by hand, then they are destemmed and gently crushed to carry out a cold maceration of 8 hours in the press: the Must is thus enriched with a greater quantity of aromas from the skins of the Chardonnay. After pressing, the Must is clarified. The slow fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, at controlled temperature (less than 20C) to preserve at best the floral aromas of the grape and the fruity aromas that develop during the process. After 10-15 days all the sugars are converted into alcohol, then the wine is poured into tonneau, where the malolactic fermentation takes place for 20 days, on fine lees. This allows to make the wine softer on the palate and further rich in aromas.

Ageing

Ageing
