After harvesting at the beginning of September, the Chardonnay grapes are crushed, cooled and subjected to a rapid maceration on the skins for 10 hours at 14°C in order to extract the primary aromas. Once the skins have been removed, the must is cleaned and fermented at a controlled temperature of 17° C for 14 days, using selected yeasts. After the alcoholic fermentation process the wine is racked. The Chardonnay matures in steel containers on its own yeasts until the final filtering process prior to bottling.
This marvellous, straw-yellow white wine, obtained from fine grapes of the same varietal, is characterised by a sophisticated lustre and a pleasantly-fresh flavour enhanced by soft notes of tropical fruit and melon, guaranteed to appeal to even the most demanding of wine experts.
