Origin: produced by the historic vineyards of the farm, owned by the Pecchioli family since 1957, located close to Florence.
Vines: Chardonnay and Malvasia Toscana (in small percentages)
Alcohol content: 13% by vol.
Vinification: The grapes are gently pressed, the must is clarified and after 24 hours the alcoholic fermentation starts at a controlled temperature.
After that, the malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is left to rest for about 2 months in small steel containers and then transferred to 225L oak barrels where it will remain for a time of about 3/4 months. Bottled at the end of the spring, the wine is marketed after a short refinement in the bottle.
Tasting notes: Intense yellow color. Strong aromatic notes of tropical fruit and spices deriving from both the grapes of origin and the short maturation in wood. The taste of the wine is persistent but characterized by an excellent freshness, deriving from the typical acid notes of a white wine. We recommend to pair with dishes based on fish sauces, medium-aged cheeses and white meats.
