2019 Baracchi "O'Lilla" Toscana Bianco
Not far from the city of Cortona, the Baracchi family runs a total Tuscan enterprise: vineyards and winery; olive groves; a Relais and Chateau Hotel with a Michelin one-star restaurant and spa. Their wines reflect an emphasis on elegance. Consulting Winemaker Stefano Chioccioli has worked for wineries large and small in virtually every winemaking region of Italy and also has extensive international experience, making wines in France and Hungary. His wines have great success internationally and today more than 70 have “tre bicchieri”.
80% Chardonnay and 20% Viognier. Fermented and then aged 9 months in stainless steel vats with an additonal 3 months in bottle before the release. Bright light yellow color, with greenish hues. Complex bouquet with fruity aromas of green apple, citrus, and pineapple, accompanied by flowery notes and hints of herbs. Intense, smooth and fresh on the palate, with a pleasantly savory wake. Elegant and harmonious.
