Vintage Awards
Information

The rare elegance of this wine is the result of an unusual fusion of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. After nine months’ barrel aging, the Chardonnay is blended with the Sauvignon Blanc fresh from aging in stainless steel. The result is a complex wine with a distinct personality and keen mineral notes that can be savored even after many years in the bottle.

PRODUCTION AREA
Tuscany

Growing Season

The growing season 2014/2015 was quite regular without extreme events and full ripeness was reached 10 days earlier. These are the prerequisites of a great harvest in terms of quality and quantity.
As usual, the harvest began with Chardonnay on August 31. The grapes were perfectly ripe and healthy. The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested immediately after.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow in color. To the nose its shows intense aromas of yellow pulp fruit, citrus notes with delicate vanilla scents. The mouth is round, velvety, fresh and long lasting.
Complex wine with distinct personality and keen mineral notes that can be savored after many years in the bottle.
