Description:

TERROIR AND CLIMATE

Milazzo NATURE is a blanc de blanc  from Chardonnay grapes . This wine expresses the perfect synthesis between the Chardonnay grapes , the terroir and the Mediterranean climate.  Thanks to the mild climate typical of Campobello di Licata, we obtain a full maturation of the chosen selections and, at the same time, we are able to preserve freshness, elegance, aromas thanks to the wide temperature range between day and night.  A Mediterranean style. An authentic expression of this terroir acheived trough the choices we made in the vineyards and in the cellars.

WINEMAKING

A vinification management aimed at emphasizing the research on the cultivar and favorable interaction between position, characteristics of the soil and microclimate of the vineyard. A rigorous protocol of production with bases matured partly in stainless still vats, partly in barriques before the tirage.  Minimum maturation onthe lees: 48 months.

SENSORY PROFILE

Cristal clear, pale yellow with greenish hints, fine beautiful perlage, persistent and very well made. Clean to the nose, notes of white flowers and aromatic vegetable perfumes emerge evoking the typical vegetation of the Mediterranean shores. It closes with an excellent minerality reminding of flint. Notes of yeast and bakery are not present, in perfect line with the Nature’s style. The nose is not reminding of creamy opulence but shows a muscular character. The mouth confirms the first impression: fresh, balanced, structured, persistent and sapid till the end.
