Late harvest, soft pressing and static clarification. Fermentation takes place exclusively in Allier barriques. Once this process is complete, the lees are stirred once weekly for three months. The wine is aged for ten months in barriques on the fine lees, followed by a longer period of bottle ageing. The wine is only available for purchase two years after the harvest.

Our tasting note

Chardonnay Riserva Vigna "Castel Ringberg" exhibits a fresh golden yellow and delivers a bouquet characterised by a variety of aromas: Dense and complex with exotic fruits including papaya, spicy with roasted almonds, and with a hint of dandelion honey. The wine impresses on the palate with a unique interplay of freshness and power, an elegant structure, a juicy, mineral vein paired with creamy richness, plenty of harmony and a long, refreshing finish.
