Paolo e Noemia d’Amico Calanchi di Vaiano 2018
Straw yellow with green tinges. In your mouth the wine is fresh and lively, but deceptively so because it is so much more than just a fresh white Italian wine. For one thing, it has a rich, oily-like texture that stretches all the way down your throat. Its precision and purity of flavor and the fabulous minerality that emerges in the glass. At the heart of the wine’s structure is its brilliant acidity, which gives the wine thrust as it moves through your mouth. A marvellous expression of the volcanic soil of la Tuscia. Perfect wine for a Chablis lover.
This wine, obtained from Chardonnay grapes, is harvested manually as the ancient tradition. The must is cooled at 8 °C and pressed immediately. The fermentation and settling takes place 80% in stainless steel vats and 20% in new French oak barrels. The wine ages in stainless steel vats for about 8 months and settles in bottles for about 5/6 months before reaching the market.
