The rare elegance of this wine is the result of an unusual fusion of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. After nine months of ageing in fine oak barrels, the Chardonnay is blended with the

Sauvignon Blanc fresh from aging in stainless steel. The result is a complex wine with a distinct personality and keen mineral notes that can be savored even after many years in the bottle. The 2016 harvest was of high quality in Chianti area.

Ageing premium quality white wines is an old tradition in many countries in Europe. During these months of ageing, the wine’s aromatic profile will become more developed and the structure will become more complex. Tertiary flavours including notes like nuts, honey, hay or wax start to show. They have a higher level of sophistication and depth when paired with food.
