This is a light white wine, delicately fruity and floral, not excessively dry. It has a relatively low alcohol content, something not easy to achieve in these years of extremely hot weather; the bunches of Chardonnay, for example, already had a potential alcohol level of 12% when picked… but the blend of grapes used to create the wine, thanks to subtle variations in the percentages of the varieties, makes it possible to keep the alcohol content low. The must is cooled, then the solid particles and pulp are left to settle in order to be able to remove them before fermentation (carried out at a low temperature, 17 °C). In this way it is possible to maintain a delicate effervescence in the wine and a very few grammes of sugar.
Tasting – Colour: it has various different hues, yellowish, onion-coloured, pale dusty pink and very slightly grey. The nose: white-fleshed fruit such as Golden Delicious apples, delicate climbing roses and nuts as it matures. In the mouth: pleasantly fresh with a hint of effervescence while it’s young, acidulous but well-balanced by the residual sweetness.
Wine and Food Pairing – In the glass it has the charm of an aperitif. It fits in well with appetizers, or alongside pasta with zucchini and pecorino cheese, fish first courses, all kinds of omelettes and grilled vegetables, as well as being excellent with fish dishes that are not too flavoursome.
