Fruity and delightful on the palette, Lamelle is our youngest child, unique and exuberant and the only white amongst our wines. The climate and terroir at Il Borro would normally make producing white wine a challenge, but we always try to exceed expectations.
The “Lamelle” is made from hand-picked Chardonnay grapes. The vendage is followed by a soft and delicate pressing and separation of the skins and the must.
Alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 16°C, 50% in new French casks and the remaining 50% in stainless-steel vats, and lasts for 8-10 days. The wine is subsequently blended and left to mature for a further two months in barrels. At the end of this period, the “Lamelle” wine is filtered and left for another two months in the bottle before being sold.
Taste: well balanced and full of flavour with notes of freshness and elegance thanks to its short cask life which gives the wine its vigour and structure.
