Vintage 2018


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.

With a rich and complex palate, the 2018 Chardonnay evokes fragrant and intense aromas typical of a pâtisserie françaises and at the same time unfolding its fresh and mineral texture in an endless crescendo.
