From our passion, and in our sunny vineyards, our best wines are born.
This is a terroir for structured red wines, therefore the idea and intuition to also ferment our Chardonnay Colibrì in small French oak barrels. After the fermentation, the wine is racked and put back in the woods on its lees. Here it undergoes periodic batonnage to improve the structure and aromatic complexity. The whole process takes 14 to 16 months. Ideal in combination with seafood dishes, also elaborated recipes.
