Passopisciaro Contrada PC Bianco

Case of 6 bottles

Bottle Size: 750 ml

Vintage: 2021

Varietals: Chardonnay 100%

Region: Sicilia

Tasting Notes: Expressive with bright acidity. Stoney minerality and wild honey with saline and lemon zest.

Ageing/Vinification: The harvest occurs during the first weeks of September, where the grapes, still fresh, are harvested meticulously by hand and brought at low temperatures to the winery. There, they are destemmed and cold soaked for 12 hours, immediately after which they are pressed and undergo alcoholic fermentation inside large neutral oak barrels of no more than 20HL. Remains in contact with the fine less for at least 6 months to enrich the wine and underscore its unique potential. Fining and bottling follow the cycles of the waning moon, in June and July respectively; the wine is not filtered. It spends an additional year in the bottle to arrive at its full potential and richness.

Vineyard: CONTRADA PC comes from a minute parcel of chardonnay planted on small and laborious terraces between 870m and 950m above sea level, where the production is naturally limited and the maturation very particular and complex. Naturally occurring malolactic fermentation follows in barrel, after which it is racked off of the gross lees and back into the same large oak barrels.
