Witnesses the happy result of the adaptation to the Mediterranean climate of the Chardonnay on the limestone hills of the DOC Castel del Monte. The grapes are harvested in mid-August and fermented at controlled temperatures. The contact with the lees for a few months in cement tanks allows to obtain a wine with pronounced personality, typical of the variety, and a great balance between complexity and freshness that goes well with seafood dishes.
