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.
“Lamelle” is produced by cold pressing 100% Chardonnay grapes.
Grapes are hand-harvested using 10kg cases once they have reached optimal maturity and kept refrigerated overnight at 5-10° C.
The day after the grapes are de-stemmed and softly pressed in order to avoid the extraction of unwanted compounds.
The resulting must is then decanted into stainless-steel tanks where the wine is clarified in order to remove all the sediments and then fermented at controlled temperature of 15-17° C.
After the fermentation the wine is kept on yeast lees for about 60 days, then it is decanted and bottled thereafter.
