The wine presents a bright green-gold color with silver highlights. Its nose is subtle and refined, offering pleasant hints of aniseed and delicate floral notes, reminiscent of white flowers. On the palate, the wine showcases a vibrant energy, delicacy, and elegance. It delights with a crisp touch of lemon zest and a subtle toasted flavor, leading to a tasty finish dominated by a wonderful sapidity. Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown on a 1.50-hectare plot, the grapes were carefully handpicked into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress. After pressing, the juice underwent cold settling for 36 hours under temperature-controlled conditions. The entire process of alcoholic fermentation and aging took place exclusively in oak barrels, contributing to the wine's complexity and character. Full malolactic fermentation occurred, further enhancing its richness. The wine was aged in barrels for a duration of 20 months, allowing it to develop depth and maturity. ABV 13%
