Tradition has it that the harvest at Brolio always starts with the grapes in the small three-hectare Torricella vineyard that was planted to chardonnay at the end of the 1980s. The wine produced from this fruit is named for the vineyard. It is a Chardonnay with a Tuscan character, full of backbone and personality; a distinctive white that embodies the characteristics of the terroir of Brolio as well as any of the estate’s famous reds.
Gaiole in Chianti The vineyard is set 350 meters above sea level, on mid hill land with sedimentary origins, full of sand and pebbles.
The summertime 2004 had gone through mild temperatures and slow rainfall, having thus delayed the phenological stages of the vines.
Therefore the harvest started by mid September only. The grapes were then healthy and fully matured. All the Chardonnay grapes of the Brolio estate were collected by September 15th.
The wine shows a brilliant straw-yellow colour, delicate roasted hints, clean honey scents, round and velvety taste. These characteristics make this wine delicate and tasteful.
