After fermentation the wine is racked and kept on the fine lees for 4-5 months, it does not go through malolactic fermentation. Bottled March following harvest.
Arianna and Aljoscha are more than farmer/winemakers, they are also wine lovers with an understanding of great wine made elsewhere. This perspective helps make Corzanello Bianco a standout white wine, in a region where the biancos can often taste like afterthoughts to iconic Sangiovese. By planting a diverse collection of varieties and working in field and cellar to capture fresh aromatics and acidity, Corzano e Paterno have made this wine a consistently delicious, compelling, easy-to-love core part of our portfolio. Drink it with anything really, grilled summer vegetables, wild Ottolenghi dishes that lean on lemon and garlic, even simple roasted chicken and couscous.
