Passopisciaro Contrada PC 2019
“100% Chardonnay from a 19-year-old vineyard at between 870 and 950 m above sea level planted at a density of 12,300 vines/ha. Pre-fermentation cold soak of 12 hours. Fermented in large old oak casks of up to 20 hl in which it was also aged for 18 months.
Intense straw yellow. Like the Passobianco but amplified and fortified with elegant oak notes. Peach and orange on the palate with the oak supporting the fruit. Concentrated and, at the same time, displaying a certain coolness. Drink: 2021-2026. 17+ points”
