Selezione di Famiglia – Superior white PDO, Organic
The Family Selection is a high-end wine, produced with Chardonnay grapes hand-harvested from vineyards over 30 years old in the Milici area. These vineyards, located on a marl plateau, facing east and with a highly calcareous clay component, give life to a wine with a decisive and distinctive character.
The grapes are delicately destemmed, subjected to cold maceration for about 24 hours and pressed with closed-lung pneumatic presses. Fermentation takes place partly in steel tanks and partly in oak barrels, where the wine matures for 12 months with continuous batônnage. The result is a wine with a light yellow color with green reflections, mineral on the nose with references to flint, notes of tropical fruit, fig pulp, and candied citrus. On the palate, it is extremely elegant, full and persistent, with a balance and freshness that make it a wine with great aging potential.
