Bottega Vinai Chardonnay Trentino DOC
Chardonnay is probably the most well-known grape variety in the world and has found fertile soil in Trentino. Cavit's Bottega Vinai Chardonnay is a 100% Chardonnay grape, cultivated in the hills of Santa Margherita di Ala, in Vallagarina, and from the Valle dei Laghi north of Lake Garda. Once a careful manual harvest was carried out, they were taken to the cellar to be immediately pressed and de-stemmed. The must and the skins are cooled at low temperature and remain in contact with each other for about 5 hours, to obtain the best possible extraction of the aromas. The processing phase continues with a soft pressing of the pulp and skins; the pressed grapes ferment partly in barriques and partly in stainless steel. After about 6 months of aging on the lees (30% in French oak barrels and 70% in steel), the wine is bottled in cold and fined in bottle before spending.
Bottega Vinai Chardonnay is a white wine from Trentino with a straw yellow color with greenish hues. Intense, very rich bouquet with an olfactory note of yellow apple, apricot and pineapple. The olfactory note of biscuits given by the refinement in barrique is just mentioned and approved. Full and enveloping taste; of great balance with a rich and persistent aftertaste. We suggest serving at a temperature of 12-14 °C:
