Fontanelle

Toscana IGT Chardonnay

Die Weissweine aus Montalcino

Fontanelle

Herstellungsgebiet

Weinberge im Besitz, im Hügelbereich der südlichen Hänge der Gemeinde Montalcino. Höhe: 250 Meter über dem Meeresspiegel. Lage: Hügel

Traubensorten

Chardonnay 100%.

Herstellungsmethode

Die ganze Traube wird vor der Kelterung-Abbeerung bei 8-10° gekühlt. Wenn der Mostkahm gekeltert/abgebeert ist, wird er getrennt und 48 Stunden für die kalte Sedimentation geklärt. Dann wird nur die Klärung in Barriques umgefüllt und mit den Gärstoffen für die alkoholische Gärung versetzt. Nach der Fermentierung wird die Temperatur der Räume auf 10° gesenkt, um den Beginn der malolaktischen Gärung zu verhindern. Es folgt ein Zeitraum der Veredelung auf den Gärstoffen für 5-6 Monate, diese werden einmal wöchentlich aufgeschlagen. Der Zyklus schließt mit einer Veredelung in der Flasche von 8-10 Monaten ab.

The winemaker comment

Gehört zur Produktreihe der Monosorten Castello Banfi, ein Chardonnay in seiner ganzen Reinheit, der sich mit großartiger Textur und großen Gerüchen ausdrückt, dank des Mikroklimas unserer eher nördlich gelegenen Weinberge in Montalcino und dank der Alterung in französischen Barriques.

  • Seasonal Outcome The sufficient spring rainfall avoided any water stress during the hot summer months. The quite hot temperatures in July and August, together with a quite wide-range difference in temperature between night and day, favored the grapes maturation. This way, the white grapes could develop an excellent aromatic profile, while the reds could achieve a very good synthesis of polyphenols. September was sunny and dry, with warm temperatures that let complete the ripening of the grapes and yielded for most favorable conditions during the harvest.
Verkostungen

An extremely intense wine, accompanied by floral scents and fruity notes of pear, citrus and a light hint of toasted hazelnut. In the mouth it has a considerable and silky structure, well supported by an excellent acidity that gives freshness and persistence at the same time.

  • Herstellungsmethode

    The whole grape bunches are chilled to 8-10°C prior pressing and destemming. The free-run juice is then separated and clarified over 48 hours by cold sedimentation, and only the clear must is racked into barriques and inoculated with yeasts for the alcoholic fermentation.

    After the fermentation, the roomtemperature is lowered to 10°C to avoid the beginning of malolactic fermentation. An aging period on the fine lees follows during 5-6 months with a weekly stirring of the lees. An 8-10-month bottle aging concludes the cycle.

  • Seasonal Outcome The growing cycle began slightly in advance. We had a very rainy spring and cool temperatures, and well below the seasonal average, in the summer months. This meant that the maturation of the grapes took place with a delay of about 10 days compared to the previous years. The harvest of early varieties was facilitated by a rather cool beginning of September, while late varieties enjoyed a rise in temperatures in the last decade of the month, which allowed for a full ripening of the grapes.
Verkostungen

Straw yellow color. The perfumes are fresh, with sweet, floral and fruity notes of pear, melon, peach and citrus. In the mouth it has a considerable size well supported by an excellent acidity. The wine is very well balanced with a long finish.

  • Seasonal Outcome The growing cycle began with a significant delay, with some rains during the Spring. June was marked by cooler temperatures, under the seasonal average. August and September were hot and dry, but the ripening, despite two weeks delay, have been supported by water reserves of the previous months. Summer nights were characterized by cooler temperatures, contributing to the improvement of the quality of the grapes. From the end of September, rainfall was abundant, causing problems during the repining, without affecting the vineyards.

  • Seasonal Outcome The vine’s growth cycle started at the right time with particularly mild and dry weather in April and May. Sunny days in June were then followed by copious rainfall in mid-July, accompanied by a significant drop in temperature. August was fairly cool, but the region was then covered by an anti-cyclone weather pattern originating from Africa, which led to a spike in temperatures, reaching well above the average for the period and lasting for around two weeks, putting the vines under hydric stress and accelerating the ripening. September and October were sunny and dry with very hot temperatures.

  • Seasonal Outcome The growing season began with a slight delay, and spring was characterized by a very rainy May and June. The temperatures in June were very cool and well below the seasonal average but from early July the temperatures began to rise and it became hot in the second week of the month. In August temperatures fell again, and the cool nights contributed to the quality of grapes, both in aromatics and maintaining organic acidity. From mid-August through September there was little rainfall, facilitating a smooth harvest.

  • Seasonal Outcome The spring start to the growing cycle was marked by abundant rainfall, which helped provide high levels of water reserves. The rainy phase went on, unusually, through mid-July, with temperatures particularly cool and well below the seasonal norm. Through the rest of the season, the weather stayed warm and dry; allowing the vines to take advantage of the water reserves accumulated during the spring. Relatively cool nightly temperatures allowed for the development of aromatics and polyphenols, enhancing the overall quality of the fruit. The harvest went smoothly through an extended period thanks to dry, warm and sunny days in September and October.

  • Seasonal Outcome The winter, with levels of precipitation above the seasonal average and quite mild temperatures, was followed by a very normal spring, in terms of both rainfalls and temperature. The months of May and June were marked by some rain, with pretty cool temperatures through mid July. The hail storm which took place on August 15th struck only part of our vineyards, sparing our best quality grapes and resulting in only a slight decrease in production. Overall, each of the various growing phases of the vineyard took place slightly later than in previous years, including a two-week postponement of harvest to allow for optimal conditions.

Fortunately, the heavy rainfall of the previous winter allowed for abundant water reserves in the soil, thus avoiding the risk of hydric stress for the plants. The spring frost, combined with the hot summer, allowed for a rich and concentrated fruit, even if greatly reduced in quantity. Most importantly, normal patterns of significant variations between daytime and night temperatures returned, adding finesse and complexity to this very good vintage. The exceptionally healthy berries of this vintage allow for an optimal quality harvesting.

  • Seasonal Outcome This vintage is most noted for a particularly dry summer. Torrid heat in late July through mid August had great influence on the quality of the grapes, causing a very contained development of the plant and fruit. Small berry size with a higher proportion of solids (skins and seeds) to juice influenced the vinification process as well. Manual harvest, soft pressing and temperature-controlled barrel fermentation allowed us to extract a good bouquet while maintaining excellent structure for this wine.

This wine of intense “sunfilled” color tone offers its first impact with light notes of sweetness and vanilla in an elegant manner.  Sensations of ripe fruit follow, well integrated and pleasant.  On the palate, the wine offers a striking fusion of freshness with the weight and fatness of its style.

Verkostungen

Fresh young color with golden reflexes.  A nose of great complexity; a lot of varietal fruit is well woven into beautiful spices from the wood.  Rich, yet elegant on the palate. Layers of fruit stand out, with well-balanced and refreshing acidity.  Long finish.
