Wine glass icon Tasting notes:
Color: Visually it appears of a clear straw yellow that tends to golden.
Bouquet: The nose shows fruity scents, grapefruit peel, pineapple and dried apricot. Then the secondary hints emerge such as melted butter, honey, hazelnut and mineral sensations.
Taste: In the mouth it is savory, warm, full but lean. A slight and pleasant tannic vein is perceptible with a sapid-bitter aftertaste.

Information icon Note from the wine-maker:
Wine of great richness and elegance, characteristics conferred by the Chardonnay grape which finds optimal production conditions among the white clay hills of Gabiano.
The limited production of grapes per hectare is obtained with rigorous pruning and selection of the grapes during the harvesting phase which takes place by hand.
The slightly late harvest allows to obtain clusters of an intense gold color with great aromatic complexity and high sugar accumulations.
The 7-month stay in barrique gives Castello complexity and broad and defined nuances, perceptible both to the nose and to the palate.
