Il Cascinone – Campo Fiorito Chardonnay, 2019
SKU: IAR999 Category: White
A restrained, textural Chardonnay from the Campo Fiorito vineyard, a 12 acre north-east facing plot on the stunning Il Cascinone estate. Its harmonious gently honeyed style is reminiscent of good Mâcon.
How it's made
The 12 acre Campo Fiorito vineyard is located on the north-east facing slopes of the 148 acre estate of Il Cascinone, in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte (planted in 1998). This cooler site is perfect for the slower maturation needed to produce fresh whites. Grapes are typically harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September. 10% of the wine was fermented and aged in French oak barriques for added richness and complexity.
Match with white meats in cream sauces or perhaps avocado salads.
A delicate nose of ripe stone fruit, the palate is well balanced and creamy. In addition to the ripe peach, minerality adds to the broad mouthfeel and clean acidity.
