DESCRIPTION:

The Chardonnay grapes are enriched by a touch of Fiano, all produced organically. Each wine vinificated separately in steel vats. The chardonnay is then aged in French and Hungarian wooden barrique before being blended with the Fiano. The result is a wide bouquet with the mineral notes of the fiano, and the vanilla buttery notes of the chardonnay. Palate is fresh and wide with a good balance between fruity and savoury notes. Long lasting finish.
