Tasting notes
Brilliant yellow with golden highlights. Exceptionally fruity on the nose with notes of ripe banana, pineapple and mango, which blend perfectly with the spicy aromas of the barrique. Full and soft on the palate. Creamy texture, notes of southern fruit and blossom honey. A long finish full of finesse.
1242007522 sustainable elegant, complex Meat, Fish up to five years
A multi-layered Chardonnay, matured on the fine lees and refined in barrique. The nose has notes of ripe banana, pineapple and mango, along with spicy woody nuances. Full and soft on the palate.
Goes with fish and white meat, but also with creamy sauces. Delicious with panzanella (Tuscan bread salad).
The grapes for this wine come from one of the highest and best locations on the estate. «Fontanelle» lies at 250 metres above sea level. The grapes undergo a strict selection process before being destemmed and cooled to 12 to 14 degrees. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in barriques made of French oak. This is followed by eight to ten months of maturation in 350 l barriques of French oak with bâtonnage and roulage. This process yields a creamy, complex white wine with plenty of freshness.
