Chardonnay Fabrizio Bianchi Castello Di Monsanto
Born in 1980 by Fabrizio Bianchi’s challenge of creating a white wine of great character in a territory not particularly suited to them, this selection of Chardonnay from the Valdigallo vineyard, of 3,50 hectares at an altitude of 260 meters with northeast exposure, is made vinified by half in French barrels of 5hl and the other half in steel. Affinated over two years in the bottle before the sale. Its great aging ability allows it to enjoy its characteristics after many years of harvest.
Chardonnay Fabrizio Bianchi is one of the best Tuscan Chardonnay
Although Castello di Monsanto is known for many different wines, the Chardonnay Fabrizio Bianchi is accepted as one of the best impressions of the international chardonnay vine, coming from Tuscany! Its freshness and its very intense floral aromas make it very pleasant to accompany the best fish dishes!
Chardonnay Fabrizio Bianchi ambassador of the Tuscan white wines
Tuscany is rightly recognized as a land of great red wines, but despite this name, some producers, such as the castle of Monsanto, in addition to producing great red wines, have engaged in the production of great white wines, using all their experience. The Chardonnay Fabrizio Bianchi is also known as one of the ambassador of the tuscan white wines!
About The Producer:
There are two places in Monsanto that capture every visitor for the charm and the magic that is perceived: the Poggio’s hill and the historic cellar of the ‘700.
Being able to transmit at least a tenth of the emotions you experience visiting the Monsanto winery is very difficult. The aromas, the echoes, the silences, the layers of noble molds make it a unique place that deserves at least one visit.
The company has its origin from here. So from a climb on the Poggio and from a descent into the cellar, the idea of making a Cru in Chianti Classico was born for the first time. It was 1962 when the first 6,000 bottles of the Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggio were produced.
Of the 72 hectares planted with vineyards, between 260 and 310 meters s.l.m., 56 ha are in Sangiovese, the vine in which the company has deeply believed from the beginning. The Sangiovese clones present in the vineyards come from a mass selection of vines found in the vineyard Il Poggio, “the mother” of all the vineyards of Monsanto. In a small percentage are then present the two historical vines of the Chianti Classico vine: Canaiolo and Colorino.
