Chardonnay Riserva DOC 2019...

Complex Chardonnays from high altitudes are a rarity, but that is precisely where the appeal lies for us. Troy means 'path' in the language of our ancestors. The name<br />illustrates our long journey of research and experimentation with this noble grape variety.<br /><br />The winter ended with abundant snow in the mountains. Warmer temperatures in March and April caused premature and rather uneven budding in the well-supplied soils. A<br />cool May then delayed the flowering. In humid and hot June, a high fungal disease pressure developed, which could be contained through sensitivity and a lot of careful<br />manual work. The rest of the summer was largely dry and was only interrupted by short, heavy thunderstorms. Two hot spells had practically no negative effects. A<br />significant drop in the lowest temperatures began in mid-August. High temperature differences between day and night characterised the weather throughout the harvest. The<br />harvest took place about 14 days later than in the previous year. The white wines of the 2019 vintage show an impressive freshness, Gewürztraminer are characterised by<br />particular elegance. The red wines present a lot of fruit and a lively tannin structure. <br /><br />Grape variety: Chardonnay<br />Yield: 38 hl/hectare<br />Altitude: 500 - 550 m<br />Soil: calcareous gravel and clay soil<br />Age of vines: around 25 years, stocking on Guyot and simple, open pergola<br />Exposure: south-east<br />Climate: extreme interplay between sunny days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and night hours influenced by cold downdrafts from the surrounding mountains<br />Harvest: Beginning of October<br />Alcohol: 14,0 % vol<br />Total acidity: 6.1 g/l<br />Residual sugar: &lt;2 g/l<br />

Chianti class. 2021...

At Castellare, Chianti Classico is produced using only two indigenous grape varieties: Sangioveto, the prince of Tuscan vines, which makes up 90% of the blend, and the<br />remaining 10% of Canaiolo, another typical variety of the area. The true Chianti Classico, therefore, without the addition of international vines such as Cabernet or Merlot, in<br />order to maintain the authentic formula of the most famous of Italian wines while seeking maximum elegance.<br /><br />Tasting notes: the colour of this Chianti Classico is the ruby red of Sangioveto. The nose is fragrant, fresh with pleasant hints of red fruit, liquorice, currants and a light touch<br />of vanilla. The typical notes of Chianti Sangiovese dominate. On the palate it expresses a pleasant sweetness, is round, soft and savoury. Acidity and persistence<br />characterise a very elegant aftertaste.<br /><br />Pairings: A very versatile wine that also goes well with structured and important dishes. It also goes well with stews and medium-aged cheeses.<br /><br />Varieties: 90% Sangioveto 10% Canaiolo<br />

The winter season passed with mild temperatures and low rainfall. These<br />conditions led to an early spring. From the second week of April, the weather changed dramatically and until mid-May, rain was the protagonist with temperatures below<br />average. These weather conditions compromised the flowering and were the cause of spinning of the wings of the bunches and floral dripping, resulting in smaller, more<br />sparse bunches with very low average weights. After 15 May we saw a clear improvement in the weather conditions which allowed us to set fruit in favourable conditions.<br />Above-average temperatures characterised the month of June, which can be described as the driest in the last 20 years. The dry weather continued until mid-July with the<br />vines beginning to show symptoms of water stress. The beginning of August brought us the much-desired rain, effectively saving the season.<br />From 20 August, with the start of the harvest, temperatures returned to normal and the fine weather accompanied us until the end of the season.<br />and good weather accompanied us until the end of August. The harvest began on 20 August and ended on 5 September in good weather. Average yield per hectare was<br />4,800 kilograms of grapes, equivalent to 3,020 litres of wine (wine yield: 63%). The small size of the bunches and the low yields in the vineyard have legitimised the high<br />quality of this vintage, which is expressed in the Cuvée Prestige Edition 44 by an intense aroma of citrus, white and yellow fruits and by a full-bodied, extremely lively taste.<br /><br />VINIFICATION<br />The base wines of the Cuvée Prestige are the result of a careful selection of grapes and a skilful vinification process conducted in full respect of the Ca' del Bosco Method.<br />The grapes, harvested by hand in small crates, are classified and cooled. Each bunch is selected by expert eyes and hands, and then benefits from the exclusive 'berry<br />spa': a special system of washing and hydromassage of the bunches consisting of three soaking tubs and a drying tunnel. After pressing in the absence of oxygen, all the<br />musts of the base wines ferment in temperature-controlled steel tanks and remain there until the following March. Seven months of refinement are then necessary for the<br />wine to clarify, mature and bring out the best of the character of the original vineyards. The wines are then skilfully blended in the 'magic ritual' of creating the cuvée. It is<br />only after a minimum of two years of ageing on the lees that this Franciacorta can express all its richness and identity. The dégorgement takes place in the absence of<br />oxygen, using a unique system designed and patented by Ca' del Bosco. This avoids oxidative shocks and further additions of sulphites. It makes our Franciacorta wines<br />purer, more pleasant and longer-lived. Finally, each packaged bottle is uniquely marked to ensure traceability.<br /><br />DRILLING<br />From April to June of the year following the harvest.<br /><br />AVERAGE AGEING ON THE LEES<br />On average 25 months.<br /><br />DOSAGE AT DISGORGING<br />Sugar content 1.0 grams/litre - 'Extra Brut'.<br /><br />ANALYTICAL DATA AT DISGORGEMENT<br />Alcohol 12.8% vol.; pH 3.11; Total acidity 5.80 grams/litre; Volatile acidity 0.32 grams/litre.<br /><br />SULPHITES<br />Total sulphur dioxide, maximum 55 milligrams/litre (maximum legal limit: 185 milligrams/litre), concentration specified on the back label.<br />
