Vintage 2013


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.

"The very mirror of its growing year, encapsulating purity and intensity, freshness and flavour. A long-lingering wine that lends itself to a grand occasions. Please note: this is a very limited-production wine! "
