This wine is primarily produced from Chardonnay and Grechetto grapes, harvested overnight and chilled to preserve their aromas, prior to pressing and destemming. The two varieties mature at different times, and are fermented and refined separately. Chardonnay is briefly macerated cold for 4-6 hours, then fermented for 18 days in new French oak barriques, where it remains on its own yeasts for 6 months. The Grechetto, however, is fermented and refined in stainless steel. The wine is then assembled and, once bottled, rests for 10 months in the historic cellars of Castello della Sala.
Colour: Light straw yellow with brief greenish highlights
Flavour: It expresses rich, complex, and intense aromas. The notes of citrus fruit, pears, and acacia flowers are in perfect balance with the sweet and spicy notes of vanilla.
Taste: The palate is supple but vibrant, elegant and well structured, characterized by the classic mineral sensations and by the light notes of hazelnut butter.
