Name’s wine: IGT Venezia Giulia Chardonnay
Product area: Friuli Grave
The grapes are softly pressed after a short term maceration (about 6 – 8 hours ).
The must is previously decanted and fermented in steel tank for 80 % and French oak barrique for 20 %; afterwards the wine made the malolactic fermentation.
The wine is maintained for about 10 months on fine lees with frequent batonnages.
The wine has a strong yellow colour, it smells like ripe fruits, melon, hazelnuts, the wood brings to it only a weak note of spicy and complexity, but it is not predominant.
The mouth is fatty and salty and it comes out with a good structure and along the time with a strong note of mineral.
We recommend this wine in combination with entrees, white meats like poultry, fish, fresh goat cheeses. We recommend to serve it at a 12°C of temperature.
