D’ALLORO CHARDONNAY IGT< br />A wine of great personality and charm, distinguishing itself by its yellow-straw color with golden shades . Its fragrance is delicate and lingering characterized by flower aromas of hawthorn and exotic fruits. A meticulous selection of grapes brings to a white pride wine reserved for those who want a truly unique product. This wine comes from our desire to return to the roots leaving this variety, the freedom to express all its unique characteristics, from aromas to structure, to its colour already perceptible to the grapes at harvest, which find their ideal habitat in the hills where our vineyards are located.
The healthy grapes are harvested by hand and put into 15kg boxes with the correct balance between acids and sugar. After a 24 hours cold maceration in cold store aiming at transferring all the fragrant aromas from the skin to the flesh, we proceed to grape destemming and then to soft pressing of skins and finally to the must cleaning by static natural settling. Alcoholic fermentation starts at 14°C thanks to the yeasts in the skins in order to impart the character of the vine and then selected by us at a temperature of 16-18°C to make the aroma more complex, intense and persistent and the taste fuller. Aging only in stainless steel tanks where the wine remains strictly on lees for 5 months; 30 days in the bottle prior to commercialization.
The wine is bottled from the month of March.
It is an austere, harmonious, noble wine, featuring an intense and elegant fragrance with fruity notes of citrus and golden apple, acacia and honey. It 'a long-lived white wine, which acquires in depth with the ageing: with the passage of time, its aroma evolves and develops more complex notes of nuts, especially hazelnuts, and sage herbal notes. The Chardonnay perfectly pairs with pasta dishes with fish and shellfish, also served with strong sauces requiring a wine with good acidity and structure.
