Produced from the grapes cultivated in the Tenuta Montenisa estate’s vineyards, the wine is a selection of the finest Chardonnay along with a small percentage of Pinot Blanc. The result is an elegant cuvée of refined freshness.
The grapes, once in the cellar, were immediately given a soft pressing. The must obtained by this initial pressing went directly into temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks for its alcoholic fermentation. The wine was subsequently given a second fermentation in bottle, remaining then in contact with its lees for a lengthy period of time.
