Colognole Chardonnay Sinopie
The huge swings in day / night temperatures make for a fascinating Chardonnay. The vines are young and this is a wine that is destined for greatness, for now - it is an excellent everyday white, restrained and elegant.
This is a vintage that really tested the nerve of Cesare and Mario, they have planted three clones of Chardonnay (which are destined for great things when they are a bit older); when they harvested only one clone was really ripe, the other two were a bit early (one was very close, the other was left on the vine for the birds). They really didn’t have much choice as the grape skins were very thin and the harvest was already late – the result isn’t a classic, ballsy, fruit-driven Chardonnay, it is delicate, mineral, slightly green and very lovely.
A beautifully fresh and mineral vintage, green lime and even some grassy fruit. A far from typical Chardonnay, taut and refreshing. 12%
