Chardonnay "Sanct Valentin" Alto Adige DOC 2019 - San Michele Appiano

It is difficult to find a territory in which Chardonnay does not express itself to the full. But it is equally difficult, outside its native Burgundy, to find a place where it can produce such extraordinary wines as Alto Adige. The cooperative winery in San Michele Appiano has been producing this Sanct Valentin since 1986, using only grapes from selected micro-zones in the commune of Appiano, resulting in a fine white wine of considerable strength and elegance. The grapes are harvested at the end of September or the beginning of October. The vinification process involves alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, followed by lengthy ageing on the lees in barriques and tonneaux. Final blending takes place after almost a year, followed by a further maturing of at least eight months in steel. Straw yellow with light green hues, the nose has aromas of ripe fruit and vanilla and toasted notes. In the mouth, however, it is powerful and mineral. Simply unforgettable. An extraordinary wine today, it has good ageing potential. Properly stored, it can safely rest in the cellar for 10 years or more. It goes well with fish dishes, such as fritto misto, and meat dishes, such as roast chicken or cotoletta alla milanese.

About 2 million bottles per year. Very high average quality. Around 350 members. These are the numbers, and the facts, that characterise the fine cooperative winery in San Michele Appiano. Founded in 1907 by a few visionary winegrowers, it is now one of the most solid wineries in Northern Italy, with wines that have won awards all over the world. If you think of Alto Adige and its good varietals, San Michele Appiano is a must. Its production, in fact, is dominated by wines made from the typical grapes of the region, from Gewürztraminer to Müller Thurgau. From Sauvignon to Riesling. From Pinot Bianco to Lagrein. All mountain grapes that grow thanks to the mild climate and the unique soils of the vineyards. Today the winery can count on around 400 hectares of vineyards. An enormous area, if one considers the Alto Adige region, but small in absolute terms. Especially when one considers the number of members of the winery. In vineyard management, a team of technicians and agronomists is constantly at the side of each member, offering valuable advice on how to manage their rows. The result is grapes of the highest quality, which are then processed in the winery using the most innovative winemaking techniques to bring out every nuance. Welcome to Alto Adige.
