White ‘Super-Tuscan’ produced from estate grown vineyards planted after a careful study aimed at identifying the best environment for the production of this wine. The hillside, dry-farmed vineyards are located within the Chianciano and Montepulciano (Siena) property. Chardonnay grapes are blended with Grechetto, and Sauvignon Blanc. Theses hand harvested grapes are destemmed, the juice is then cooled and left with the skins for a brief period of time. After pressing and settling the wine is fermented under temperature-controlled conditions. The newly formed wine is immediately racked off, filtered and kept at low temperatures. This maintains the fruity aromas in their freshest state and allows for a natural stabilization process. This wine has not been subject to clarifications or stabilization with chemical products.
The term ‘super tuscan’ is an unofficial classification of Italian wines, which emerged in the 1970’s, created by producers wanting to move away from the restrictions of the Chianti DOC/DOCG regulations, allowing winemakers to experiment with a broader range of grape varieties and resultant wine styles.
A straw yellow colour with green highlights. The nose displays a pleasantly fruity bouquet, elegantly aromatic and harmonious. On the palate, it is medium bodied with agreeable acidity and a dry, pleasantly velvety, soft finish. Excellent as an aperitif or with typical Mediterranean cuisine, such as salads, pasta, seafood and white meats. Excellent also with flavourful, spicy Asian foods.
