Albizzia Chardonnay di Toscana IGT 2017, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi, Tuscany

 

Producer Note

A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyard, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.

Vintage

A relatively dry and mild winter led to earlier budding than usual. The spring rainfall guaranteed excellent water reserves during the long, dry summer with high temperatures which produced grapes in excellent health. Harvest took place during the second week of August.

Vineyard

The types of soils found in the vineyard are varied and composite. In some areas the soils are rocky, in some rich in clay, in others sandier, but in general they are rich and well-drained.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity levels. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats and was then matured for three months in tank to retain the purity of fruit. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation and was made in an unoaked style, resulting in a pure, fresh and aromatic Chardonnay.

Tasting Note

On the nose, the wine reveals fresh citrus notes of cedar and lime alongside tropical fruit such as pineapple leading into aromatic herbs and mint. Inviting on the palate with a smooth texture and captivating fruit flavours, giving way to a long and harmonious finish.
