CORDERO SAN GIORGIO | Rivone Chardonnay 70cl
After a soft pressing of the whole grapes, not de-stemmed, the must is left to decant in thermo-controlled
steel tanks. A few days later, it is decanted and subdivided among terracotta amphorae and French oak
barriques, where the alcoholic fermentation, lasting about 4 weeks, occurs. The malolactic fermentation is
carried out only in part.
The wine is held for about 12 months sur lies among amphorae and barriques, during which frequent
bâtonnages are done. After bottling, the wine rests for about 6 months before release.
Intense straw yellow color. On the nose, it opens on a large and complex bouquet in which ripe
peaches, orange blossom, vanilla, flint, and eucalyptus honey can be recognized. On the palate, acidity
and minerality give a delicate flavor that turns to sapidity. These characteristics are sustained with a
long persistence presaging an excellent aging potential.
