AI Galli Select Chardonnay DOC Lison Pramaggiore
If you’ve read our wine rants, you would know the wonderful existence of Oaked chardonnay – It is buttery, intense and full. Made of 100% Chardonnay grapes right out of the hills of Pramaggiore which have a clayey medium textured soil to promote bold flavors. During the first ten days of September the grapes are carefully harvested by hand, the must is then transferred to steel vats where fermentation is completed over 10 days. It is then matured in 700 litre French Oak barrels this intensifies and prolongs the vanilla flavours.
Think Audrey Hepburn, gorgeously elegant, probably smells of flowers and white pulp fruit with hints of vanilla. Well balanced lady that knows what she wants. Powerful, firm and leaves you with a lingering thought. In this case mineral-y notes
