100% Chardonnay; fruit sourced from the best parcels of the Löwengang estate, at elevations ranging from 750-1080 feet above sea level. Spontaneous fermentation in barriques and large casks. Slightly cloudy, medium-intense yellow; aromas of lemongrass, saffron and orang crocus. Medium-full with excellent concentration, very good acidity, excellent persistence and notable complexity. The finish offers beautiful freshness and notes of orange pekoe tea and lemon peel. This has long been one of Italy’s most distinctive Chardonnays, and the 2018 is first-rate. Enjoy over the next 5-8 years, though I would not be surprised if this was still drinking well in ten years.
