NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a deep straw yellow;
👃🏻 the nose opens with fresh scents of white flowers and delicate fruity notes;
👄 on the palate it is fragrant, fresh, with a pleasantly mineral finish.
This Chardonnay is fresh and very balanced, decidedly versatile, and pairs well with both fresh and slightly more structured dishes. Perfect with seafood and soups, we recommend it with spaghetti with sea urchins.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Zeni's Chardonnay Zaraosti Trentino DOC is a fresh, well-balanced white wine made from chardonnay grapes grown in the vineyard of the same name, on the slopes of Monte Corona, and harvested by hand. It is vinified in steel, with controlled fermentation, without malolactic fermentation to best preserve the integrity of the fruity nuances, which are enriched with spicy and vanilla notes as the wine matures in the bottle.
YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...
its freshness and balance.
TERROIR OF ORIGIN
The Trento area, in addition to its Trento DOC bubbles, is famous for its elegant white wines, typical of high altitude territories. Here, altitude plays a fundamental role in the quality of the wine in the glass. The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 200 and 900 metres above sea level, in an environment with climates characterised by strong daily temperature fluctuations that give the grapes aromatic complexity, elegance and freshness. In addition, the drainage and aeration conditions of the Trentino soil give the wine greater taste complexity.
South Tyrol, 8 December 1882: Roberto Zeni opened a tavern near the bridge over the Adige River and for the occasion opened a Teroldego obtained from the first harvest of some vineyards in the "Pini" area. The Campo Rotaliano, the land of Teroldego, came into its own in this period, with the hydraulic reclamation of the Adige river and the Noce torrent leading to the creation of an ideal terrain for growing vines. The Pini vineyard also expanded with the land reclamation, and as the years went by, grandfather Roberto also purchased the Pinotti, Zaraosti, Broili and Sortì vineyards. This is the beginning of the story, while the current set-up dates back to the mid-1970s, when brothers Roberto and Andrea Zeni founded the Zeni farm and the distillery of the same name. In both realities, excellence and niche production are sacred words, in the vineyard and in the cellar. Approximately 20 hectares are planted with vines, for bottles that express an extraordinary highly vocated territory such as that of Trentino Alto Adige. In recent years, the greatest effort has been directed on two fronts: the first in the vineyard, in order to achieve the correct ripeness of the grapes and thus bring to the cellar a sugary raw material and in the case of red grape varieties with soft and complex tannins; the second front is the processing of the grapes, the drying and the improvement of the conduction of alcoholic fermentation. Drying is a widespread technique in the wine world but in Trentino it has never taken hold, with the exception of the production of Vino Santo Trentino.
