Description

The grapes were given a soft pressing, and the must transferred into stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 10° centigrade to assist a natural static settling of the impurities. The Chardonnay went into small barrels where it fermented at controlled temperature. The wine then aged on its fine lees in oak barrels, during which time it went through a complete malolactic fermentation. The Fiano, instead, was fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to fully bring out its notes of freshness and crispness. In January the Chardonnay left the barrels for stainless steel tanks where it was blended with the Fiano. The wine underwent an additional period of aging in the bottle before being released.

Pietrabianca is a bright yellow in color. The nose delivers tropical notes of pineapples and lychees together with hints of orange and peach blossoms. The complex bouquet is completed by citrusy, fresh sensations accompanied by aromas of hazelnuts and vanilla. Lively on the palate with excellent freshness and structure. Pleasantly savory on the finish. Pietrabianca can be enjoyed immediately but can also age well to be appreciated in the years to come.
