NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIER
👁 characterised by a bright straw yellow colour;
👃🏻 the nose reveals a fruity bouquet (peach, pineapple and citrus fruits), followed by floral notes;
👄 the taste is balanced, fresh, savoury and soft. The finish is slightly mineral;
Chardonnay Solicum is a very fruity, floral and mineral wine. This versatility allows it to accompany delicate dishes and dishes with a fatty, unctuous and bitterish tendency. It pairs perfectly with risotto and spicy dishes, and is also interesting when paired with delicate cheeses.
A pure chardonnay grown in the vineyards of Treviso. After harvesting in mid-September, the grapes are gently pressed, after which fermentation begins in stainless steel tanks.
This is followed by a brief refinement in the bottle to preserve the organoleptic characteristics.

The winery is located in Pieve di Soligo, in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG area.
The grape variety that dominates here is glera, which may be present in purity or together with other more or less well-known white varieties such as verdiso, bianchetta, perera, chardonnay, pinot blanc and binot gris, but also black varieties such as pinot nero.
The Prosecco territories are mostly hilly, where it is difficult to work with machines.
The vineyards are cultivated and harvested practically all by hand.
The hills originated millions of years ago from the uplift of the seabed. In fact, at one time the entire area was below sea level, and marine currents have brought towards these areas numerous detritus that have been deposited layer upon layer.
This resulted in marls, clays, sandstones and muds. Subsequently, during the process of orogenesis, these seabeds emerged, thus giving rise to the various hills that make up the territory. Some of the hills were also shaped by the Dolomite glaciers that covered them: once they retreated, they left behind numerous sediments.
This is why, after a process lasting millions of years, we now find different compositions of the subsoil: above a rocky layer there are various layers composed of clay, marl, mud, sand, conglomerates of calcareous origin and sandstone.
Colli del Soligo, located between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, is an interesting and rare example of a cooperative winery dedicated to quality production.
The grapes conferred by the over 600 members are subjected to strict controls throughout the year, and are then selected during the harvest phases mainly for the production of Prosecco di Valdobbiadene.
The production area does not need much presentation: the northern Treviso hills are home to one of the world's best known and most widely drunk sparkling wines, made from the white grape variety of the same name: Prosecco or Glera. The precision and reliability of this winery allow it to offer products of excellent quality, territorial and with character.
