Notes from the Winemaker:

Grapes:
Chardonnay 100%.
The selection comes from the estates of Minervino Murge (20%) and San Pietro Vernotico (80%).

Vinification:
The grapes are pressed softly and the must that is obtained is cooled down to a temperature of 10°C in order to achieve a natural clarification for 24 hrs. Afterwards, 90 % of the must is fermented with selected yeasts, in stailness steel tanks at a temperature of 16 °C. The remaining part is fermented in second passage barriques, where the malolactic fermentation  takes place in a thermo-conditioned environment. After ageing for about 3 months in French and Hungarian oak, the wine is poured in Inox tanks at a controlled temperature, where it goes through the fining process that continues until the following bottling stage.

Alcohol level:
12.00 % vol


What Does It Taste Like?

Colour: Light yellow with greenish hues.
Scent: peach, exotic fruits, orange blossom.
Taste: soft entrance, good acidity, persistent taste.


Ratings & Reviews

"BEST BUY" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Here is a luminous and bright Chardonnay from Puglia (it only sees stainless steel) with pretty floral notes followed by white mineral and exotic fruit. It’s a light and easygoing wine that would pair with fried foods and appetizers."  - M.L.  (7/1/2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2007 vintage):
"Bright yellow-gold. Explosive, fresh aromas of white peach, banana and pineapple. Juicy and flavorful, with tropical undertones adding fleshiness to the banana and green apple flavors. Finishes clean and lively, with a hint of vanilla. An excellent, uncomplicated chardonnay and Tormaresca's most improved bottling over the last five or six years." - Ian D'Agata
