Description

The must from grapes picked during the first week in August for the Principi di Butera Chardonnay began its fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 20°C (68°F.). It was then partly racked into medium toast oak 350-liter (92 gallon) tonneaux where it continued to ferment for about 20 days. Long maturation on its own lees was followed by a few months’ bottle ageing.

  • Nose Nose
    Broad, with hints of pineapple, mango and ripe fruit, underpinned by sweetish vanilla tones.

    Straw yellow with pale golden highlights

Sommelier Review

“The Sicilian Chardonnay (just 10% of the wine sees contact with oak) is a balanced value wine with easy fruit tones that appear well-matched to the wine’s zesty acidity and streamlined style. There’s a very distant touch of toasted almond on the close that adds a smidgen of extra richness and intensity.”
