Food pairing

Taste: Persistent, full and well balanced by the mineral notes and the bright acidity.

Vinification

Vermentino is one of the few white grapes that perfectly acclimated to the Mediterranean Tuscany. It loves sea breezes and sunlight and in return provides opulent flavour and radiant freshness. This wine is produced with Vermentino grapes grown in the low-yielding vineyard of the coastal Tuscany. At the arrival to the cellar, the grapes are de-stemmed and softly crushed. By pressing we obtain different fractions of juice, each of which is cooled to 8 degrees celsius for 24 hours in order to favor the natural decantation. The clear must is then poured into stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place at a temperature not exceeding 12 degrees celsius. About a month after the fermentation, an accurate assesment of the different lots of wine obtained is made to assemble the selected ones to make the final blend.

Estate

The Castellani Family produce classic wines in Tuscany since more than 150 years. Every generation continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars in order to select the best Tuscan wines to be bottled under the family brand. Exporters of wine since 1903, the Castellani family have founded their high-quality wines on the belief that "the quality of the wine starts in the vineyard". For the past 25 years, the family has worked hard to refine the soil types and microclimates that enhance their 'great Tuscan vines', investing in research and new technologies to ensure the Castellani name continues to be associated with 'memorable wines'.
