Chardonnay of rare elegance obtained from a particularly suitable vineyard. Bottled after nine months of aging in barrels, the wine is complex, of character and great minerality; it can be appreciated even after many years in the bottle. It’s the white soul of Brolio.
Overall we can state that 2018 was a complex harvest due to the climatic trends which tended to be more humid than on average in the past, but with excellent summer temperatures and a very dry period in the months of September and October. Thanks to good underground water supplies, the plants never suffered water stress and ripened regularly. The grapes brought to the cellars was of a very high quality, which leads us to hope for a high quality wine.
At the end of August the Chardonnay grapes were handpicked. The grapes had excellent levels of natural acids, and Torricella 2008 will no doubt present outstanding structure.
On the nose there are scents of fresh flowers, elderflowers and wallflowers. On the palate, the balanced acidity enhances the freshness and the flavor of this wine. The excellent finish suggest the olfactory sensations. To be tasted even after some years in the bottle. An excellent wine to drink after a long ageing.
