Riserva "Aquila Reale" Millesimato has a truly rare elegance.
It is obtained exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown on the ancient Maso Sette Fontane estate in Valle di Cembra in Trentino. The vineyards lie at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level, and have been growing fine grapes for wine production since 1734.
It boasts an intense yellow colour with golden hues, and a bouquet of minerals blended with hints of candied fruit.
The palate is reminiscent of crusty bread; it is clear and firm, with a long finish.
VINIFICATION: Manual harvesting in the first ten days of September, whole cluster soft pressing, static decantation of the must, temperature controlled fermentation in oak barrels (50%) and in stainless steel tanks (50%), ageing on the lees for about 12 months, secondary fermentation in the bottle; 72 months ageing on the lees.
