Chigi Saracini - Vermentino IGT
GRAPES: 100% Vermentino
YIELD: 8.5 tonnes of grapes per hectare.
POSITION OF THE VINEYARDS: Colli Toscana Centrale
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARDS:
The vineyards are 15/20 years old, situated on hillsides with excellent exposure to the sun and main winds, in order to avoid dampness from pooling. The training sys- tem mainly used is the spurred cordon, managed with frequent and very careful tending. The grapes are usually harvested in the middle of September.
When fermentation has been completed the wine is kept in steel and subject to the normal stabilisation and filtra- tion processes so that it is ready for bottling by the Janu- ary after harvesting.
Pale straw yellow colour, with characteristic aromas and a smooth, elegant mouth sustained by a pleasant acid vein.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13% vol.
Aperitif, cold starters, summer dishes and fish.
