Salento Peninsula is the celebrated heel of the Italian boot, it enjoys a salubrious Mediterranean climate with mild winters and long, hot, dry summers. Chardonnay vines prefer warmer climes, hilly clay and limestone terrains cooled by prevailing breezes. These are the conditions of Salento Peninsula in a nutshell. Chardonnay grapes are picked at full physiological ripeness and softly pressed at the Tormaresca cellars. Musts are chilled to 10°C and cold settled for a natural clarification, vinified in controlled fermenters at a moderate 16°C for optimal extracion of rich fruit esters without any unnecessary uptake of phenolics. Batches are treated to a term of unoaked maturation before assembling into the finished wine.
Light yellow, greenish huets. Predominantly fruity nose with crisp apple characters, citrus fruit rinds, floral notes, acacia flowers and hawthorn. Mouthfilling palate of freshly cut orchard fruit flavours, peaches and applejack, mineral notes and savoury chalkiness, well balanced and lingering on a finish of oyster shell and light balsamic notes.
