Benefizio Pomino Bianco DOC 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Pomino Bianco DOC Chardonnay, Pomino Benefizio is Castello di Pomino’s iconic cru, sourced from a single chardonnay vineyard at an elevation of 700 metres. Serving suggestions Vegetable soups, baked sea bream, baked salmon fillet, caviar. Tasting Notes A lustrous, confident, pale gold in appearance, with shimmering highlights.A complex suite of aromatics marks the nose, showing vanilla judiciously matched with well-ripened fruit, such as peach and banana, backed by a laurel-like herbal pungency that hints of Mediterranean scrubland. The entry is heady and mouthfilling, with a lovely vein of acidity balancing the alcohol and enlivening the palate’s considerable weight. It unfurls a long-lingering finish nicely edged with appealing toasty nuances. Technical Information Yield/Hectare: 40 Hl/Ha Harvest period: End of september Vineyard practices: Manual Fermentation vats: New french barriques Fermentation temperature: <25C° Length of fermentation: 30 days with " batonnage" Length of maceration on the skins: Partial, 12 hours at 5C° Malolactic fermentation: Mainly done Maturation method: New french barriques Length of maturation: 12 months
