“Charà Chardonnay Salento” is one of the flagship products of the company Castello Monaci, in the province of Lecce (Apulia). Produced by Chardonnay vines planted with cordon on deep, dry clay soils with the presence of tuff limestone. The harvest takes place in two different moments. The 70% of the grapes are harvested around mid-August and the 30% in the second week of September. After a soft pressing, the first selection of the grapes is fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks, while the second one is fermented in oak barrels. In the early days of February the blend takes place and the wine is then left to age in bottles for about 2 months.
Characterized by an intense straw yellow colour. It has a deep tropical fruit perfume (banana, pineapple) and almond paste. At the palate it exudes a warm flavor, soft and enveloping, with a friendly and pleasant hint of vanilla. Serve at a temperature of 10-12 ° C.
