Albizzia - 2016

VINTAGE

Denomination

Chardonnay di Toscana, IGT

Description

Albizzia, made from Chardonnay, is a crisp, stylish white wine, with a broad array of fragrances ranging from citrus to tropical fruit. Wonderful as an aperitif wine, it is also perfect as a wine to enjoy at any moment throughout the day.

Vintage Report

The excellent weather conditions in April and May provided for acceleration of the phenological phases of the plants, and a particularly hot July helped with the ripening, which took place gradually thanks to the August rainfalls. August saw a drop in temperatures, which encouraged the plants to divert all the necessary nutrients to the grape clusters and produce an excellent wine for aromatic and polyphenolic qualities.

Tasting Notes

An intense, brilliant straw-yellow colour with soft greenish reflections. To the nose, the wine reveals fresh citrus notes of cedar and lemon leading into aromatic herbs and mint. Entry in the mouth is inviting, smooth and captivating, giving way to a long and harmonious finish.

Serving suggestions

Albizzia makes a wonderful aperitif wine, paired with lighter charcuterie, such as sweet-style prosciutto. It is the perfect partner to vegetable-sauced pasta, and delicate fish preparations.
