    100% Chardonnay

    Selected grapes cultivated at our Maìme estate in San Pietro Vernotico (80%) and at our Bocca di Lupo estate in Minervino Murge (20%).

VINIFICATION

The Chardonnay grapes, picked at proper ripeness levels, were immediately pressed in our cellars. After the soft pressing, the must was chilled to a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favor a natural settling of the impurities. The clarified must was then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 61° Fahrenheit (16° centigrade) in order to fully bring out the aromatic patrimony of the grapes. The wine was then aged in stainless steel until it is bottled.
