Description

Ghiaie Bianche is an organic Chardonnay fermented in barrique produced by the Tuscan winery Col d'Orcia. An excellent Tuscan white wine obtained from the best variety of aromatic white grape that stands proud in a famous terroir dedicated almost exclusively to the production of red wines: that of Montalcino. In this wine lies the full depth and immensity of the Mediterranean summer. Chardonnay grapes are grown in the vineyards owned by Col d'Orcia in Montalcino, on the Sant'Angelo hill, overlooking the river Orcia, with an excellent southern exposure. After a manual harvest and a first selection, the grapes are cooled down to a temperature of 10-12 °C, ready for soft pressing and separation of the must from the lees by static decantation. The wine ages in new French oak barrels for a period of about 15 days at a temperature of 20-22 °C. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remains on the lees with frequent batonnages. The malolactic fermentation is partial, carried out only by half the barriques. The wine completes its refinement for about 6 months in the bottle.

TASTING NOTES

Straw yellow colour with an intense, complex and elegant bouquet. The typical fruity notes of Chardonnay are enhanced by toasted and vanilla aromas due to fermentation and aging in barriques. Good structure, full and persistent taste, this Tuscan Chardonnay presents an excellent balance between fruity notes and acidity. Sapid aftertaste, long and harmonious in the finish. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

Ghiaie Bianche Chardonnay Sant'Antimo DOC Bio by Col d'Orcia is an excellent barricaded white wine that pairs well with white meats as well as vegetable flans, herb omelettes, baked fish, medium-aged cheeses and foie gras.

Winery

Col d'Orcia

Col d’Orcia is one of the oldest established wineries of Montalcino. The archaeological excavations show that the slopes of Orcia River were inhabited since the Etruscans, over 2500 years ago. Some olive trees among the Brunello vineyards prove all favourable conditions of Col d'Orcia’s climate and soil for growing grapes and olives.
