Avignonesi, Il Marzocco Chardonnay, IGT ToscanaRegular price €40.00
Avignonesi was the first Tuscan winery to release a barrel-aged white wine. Since this pioneering step in 1987, this wine, vinified in concrete, terracotta and French oak, has continued as a reference for the style in its region.
Fermentation was begun with a pied de cuve, a starter made using the natural yeasts on fruit picked a week before the main harvest.
Fans of rich, expressive Chardonnays can look forward to floral aromas and suggestions of pineapple and vanilla, with the typical creamy fullness in the mouth lifted by bright notes of elderflowers, apricot and warm citrus. The finish is clean and lively.
