Trentino Chardonnay DOC “La Casa del Picchio Verde” 2017 – Baldessariby Valentino Minotti
ORGANOLEPTIC EXAMINATION: yellow with greenish reflections, the Chardonnay has a delicate aroma of ripe fruit, peach, banana, pineapple, which harmoniously combines with the fresh, pleasantly acidulous taste.
The Chardonnay Baldessari origins are near Cerva and Gionghi. The grapes come from plots near the business centre, where they grow on the oldest vines with a simple Trentino pergola, and on the more recent ones with Guyot. The vines are well balanced and the grapes are harvested when fully ripe. The harvest for the Chardonnay Baldessari is manual and starts at the end of September. The wine is after ferments in steel tanks and aged for 10 months.
The grapes to produce Baldessari wine have thick and crunchy skins, capable of giving intense and marked aromas to the wines. The roots, not irrigated, carry very concentrated elements and nutrients from the soil that intensify the traces of the Trentino earth. This is why the wines produced by the Azienda Agricola Baldessari have a dense aroma, which reflects the characteristics of our territory. Wines capable of transmitting, as was the dream of the brothers Giuseppe and Marco Baldessari, essences of the sun, sky, woods, rain and ripe fruit. In short, poetry and land capable of giving life to unique products.
“Baldessari wine is produced around the land surrounding the city of Trento and is managed according to the organic farming method for the antiparasitic defense we resort to the use of copper hydroxide and wettable sulfur at limited doses and defined for each treatment on the basis of climatic conditions in order to avoid damage to the pedofauna and accumulation in the soil, enological adjuvants and the use of sulfur dioxide. “- Michela Baldessari
