"Tellus" Chardonnay Lazio IGP 2021 - Famiglia Cotarella - Falesco

Bianco Lazio IGP, Tellus is made from pure Chardonnay grapes from a vineyard in the commune of Castiglione in Teverina. We are located at a height of about 200 metres above sea level. Here the vines are trained using the typical spurred cordon system, and are carefully managed during the various phenological phases. Right up to the moment of harvesting, which, of course, takes place when the grapes are perfectly ripe, i.e. when they have developed delicate aromas and fragrances, without losing freshness and acidity. Harvesting generally takes place during the first ten days of September. Quickly brought to the cellar, it is immediately subjected to a cold cryomaceration phase and then fermented at a low temperature. This allows it to best express all its peculiarities and typical olfactory finesse. After racking, Tellus bianco is kept on its fine lees for several months before being bottled. In the glass it has a beautiful straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights. On the nose it is easy to pick up all the typical nuances of the variety, discovering a pleasantly complex and rich wine. Notes of citrus fruits, particularly citron, blend with sensations of fresh, sweet fruit. In the mouth, however, it is immediately satisfying, but also fresh, savoury and persistent. Excellent as an aperitif, this white will undoubtedly accompany fish dishes with pleasure. For lovers of simplicity, this is the right wine to serve when organising a nice blue fish barbecue.

The Cotarella name, in the Italian and international wine world, is one of those of weight. Riccardo Cotarella, in fact, is the best known contemporary oenologist, the one who signs, or has signed, some of the finest wines of recent years. Iconic and successful products, often awarded by wine guides all over the world. Famiglia Cotarella is the family business, founded in 1979, in Montefiascone, in the province of Viterbo, from the work of two brothers, Renzo and Riccardo. A very special project, conceived with a very precise objective, that of recovering the ancient vines of the area. Almost 50 years later, Famiglia Cotarella has become an absolute reference point for quality oenology in central Italy. In recent years, the two Cotarella brothers have passed the hand over to their daughters, Dominga, Marta and Enrica, who take care of every aspect. Today the company has expanded considerably and cultivates land in Umbria and Tuscany, as well as in Lazio.
