The Chardonnay Toscana from the winery Caparzo shines intensely yellow with very beautiful gold reflexes in the glass. In the nose an intense, yet elegant fragrance unfolds with fruity notes of apricots and ripe pears. In addition there are aromas of exotic fruits. On the palate this appealing Tuscan white wine is pleasantly fresh, spicy, full-bodied and round. The medium long finish is velvety soft and lively at the same time.
Vinification of Chardonnay from the Tuscany of Caparzo
The Chardonnay is harvested in different lots on different reading dates. The dates range from the end of August to the end of September. Montalcino, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Magliano Trebbiano, Moscato and Vermentino are also harvested. These grape varieties complement the Chardonnay in their characteristics and provide a very interesting variety in the wine. The grapes are gnawed by hand, but also with machines that separate the leaves from the grapes. The fermentation takes place over a period of 2 weeks at a controlled temperature of 16-18°C.
The fermentation is carried out by hand. The fermentation of part of the Chardonnay grapes is stopped in order to preserve a small part of the residual sweetness of the wine.
