Vintage 2009

MONTEVERRO CHARDONNAY


Even though the defining stylistic feature of this wine comes from Burgundy, it is 100% Tuscan. The influence of the sea breeze and cool nights make it possible to produce this white wine in selected parcels, which ties in with the great role models with its elegant, silky texture, and its freshness and finesse. It owes its golden yellow colour, complexity and notes of caramel and toasted bread to ageing in barriques and concrete eggs, and its aromas of lemon, pear, quince and pineapple, of almonds and ripe apple to the ideal climatic conditions. As great lovers of Chardonnay, the production of this white wine in small quantities (approx. 5,000 bottles per vintage) is something close to our hearts.

"A cool year that gave rise to a particularly delicate yet deep Chardonnay. The fruit aromas enhance its near-endless vein of earthy minerality. A wine to be savoured on its own by the sea or with fresh tuna tartare."
