The fragrant, gold-colored clusters of the simple Trentino guyot and pergola vineyards grow in the Cembra Valley and on the green hills of Faedo and Pressano, from which the Piana Rotaliana can be seen. The soil in these areas is medium-textured, tends to be clayey and struggles to absorb water.
The chardonnay grapes from the winery's best hillside vineyards are harvested strictly by hand, usually starting in early September. After the clusters are delivered, the delicate phase of vinification immediately begins with fermentation of the must in steel barrels and maturation in small oak barrels for 18 months. This is followed by bottle aging for 4 months.
In its early years, Chardonnay Cortuta will be appreciated for the perfect synthesis of freshness and smoothness. A greater roundness of flavor will be gifted to those who let this label rest longer in the cellar. It goes well with important dishes of fish raised in Trentino and delicate meats produced by the Provincial Breeders Federation.
