In the heart of the Tuscan hills, nestled in the serene village of San Miniato , lies Inserrata—a testament to the artistry of organic winemaking. Here, amidst an enchanting terroir adorned with fossils, limestone, and sand, the Chardonnay grape reigns supreme, yielding two exceptional wines that epitomize elegance and innovation: Intrigo and Inedito.
Chardonnay: The Jewel of Inserrata's Vineyards
The Chardonnay grape is the true gem of Inserrata's vineyards, thriving in this unique terroir that infuses each bunch with character and charm. This organic farm's commitment to sustainable practices and an unwavering respect for the land are evident in every glass of Chardonnay they produce.
Intrigo Chardonnay: A Symphony of Purity
Intrigo, the first of Inserrata's Chardonnay creations, is a celebration of purity and precision. Made from grapes carefully handpicked from their vineyards, this wine undergoes fermentation and aging in stainless steel vats. This meticulous process results in a wine that perfectly captures the essence of the Chardonnay grape.
The Intrigo Chardonnay boasts an average annual production of 2500 bottles. Its crisp acidity, vibrant citrus notes, and a subtle minerality make it a delightful companion for a variety of dishes. Whether enjoyed with seafood, poultry, or simply on its own, Intrigo is a testament to the harmony that can be achieved when tradition meets innovation.
Inedito Chardonnay: A Barrel-Aged Masterpiece
Inedito, on the other hand, is a testament to the art of patience and the rewards it bestows. This Chardonnay is aged for a full year in small barrels, followed by an additional year in the bottle, yielding a mere 350 bottles annually. This painstaking process allows the wine to develop complexity and depth, creating an experience that is truly one-of-a-kind.
Inedito's golden hue and rich, layered flavors unveil a bouquet of ripe fruits, vanilla, and subtle oak. Each sip is a journey through time, as the wine evolves gracefully in the glass. This Chardonnay is a remarkable companion for special occasions, gourmet dinners, or a quiet evening of reflection.
