Le Bruniche Chardonnay Toscana IGT play

Region: Italy / Tuscany / Chianti

Located north of the village of Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, the Nozzole estate covers a striking, rugged, mountainous area of about 1,000 acres, a third of which is vines and olive groves. The finest Chardonnay grapes are selected from the Nozzole estate’s 222 acres of vineyards at 984 feet in elevation. In order to obtain concentration and complexity, yields are kept low. The vines for Le Bruniche grow on one of the estate’s highest hillsides, where excellent sun exposure and limestone and marl soils help to maintain an optimal ground temperature. Le Bruniche grapes are gently pressed and the juice is cold settled. The must is fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature and stays on the lees for about three months. Malolactic fermentation is in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged at least two months in bottle before release, with no oak contact.
