Chardonnay Venezia Giulia IGT
The grapes for this way are harvested in late September and grapes are soft-pressed whole, with a portion fermented in stainless steel, and another in new medium-toasted Allier barrique and tonneaux; the latter undergoes twenty-four hours of cryomaceration before bottling. A lovely intensity with a never-excessive toasty note. Mellow and structured, with well-integrated acidity and excellent balance and persistence.
