Carpineto wine estates are famous for plenty of wines, among which their renowned IGT denominational whites. And there is good reason for this. We’ve already told you about Farnito Cabernet Sauvignon and Farnito Camponibbio, so now we’d like to introduce you to another great wine. This time we’ve chosen a white wine, one which is produced from vines just off the hills of Florence, between Chianti and Valdarno. The Farnito Chardonnay is made from transalpine territory grapes which are carefully selected and planted on just 2 hectares of land.
The Farnito Chardonnay white wine is a full-bodied, delicate wine which is dry but not sour to the taste. It is a perfect accompaniment to fish dishes, raw and seasonal vegetables and works well also with meat and dairy dishes. Its golden yellow color denotes a perfect ripening of the rapes which are macerated in their own juice at a low temperature and then fermented in small oak barrels. This wine is aged in the same barrels where the must of the the previous April harvest grapes is vinified. It is a young wine, but is solid, structured and has strong aromas such as fruit, spices, licorice and vanilla and it proves a worthy “cousin” to its red wines of the same brand.
The Farnito Chardonnay white wine can be served throughout the entire meal thanks to its unique taste and fragrant bouquet. It is best served with appetizers such as raw fish, finger sandwiches; first and second fish courses and even desserts. This is a wine that lends itself well to food pairings and is able to stand by both elaborate and simple dishes from soups to fried foods such as the famous Tuscan caciuccio. The serving temperature of this wine, as all great white wines, should never be too low. The myth that white wine should be served chilled applies only to “every day” white wines of mass production, and not for a wine which has top quality aromas such as this one. The ideal serving temperature is between 50° to 59° so you can fully ejoy every sensation contained in the bottle.
