Vintage 2015 Organic


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena – Sant’Angelo in Colle, located on the hill overlooking the Orcia river and facing South. Average height: 250 m above sea level.

Chardonnay. Selected clones coming from Burgundy.
Vintage 2015 yield: 28 q/ha. Manual harvest, with rigorous grape selection.

Grapes are chilled at 10°-12° in a conditioned cellar. Soft pressing was followed by an overnight decanting of the juice to allow settlement of the rough impurities. Fermentation took place for 15 days at temperatures between 20°C and 22°C in new French oak barriques. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is kept on the yeasts and frequently stirred up (bâtonnage) until the following spring. Malolactic fermentation was only partially done, it took place in only half of the barriques.
