Vintage 2009


This type of vine poses a challenge in Tuscany – although the sea breeze, cool nights, and soil structure make it possible to produce this single varietal white wine in a select few locations. Its crispness and elegant texture are similar to the great examples of Burgundy; it owes its complex aroma to careful work in the vineyard and aging in both barriques and concrete. A unique Chardonnay from the Tuscan coast, produced in very limited quantities.

"A cool year that gave rise to a particularly delicate yet deep Chardonnay. The fruit aromas enhance its near-endless vein of earthy minerality."
