The business card of the province of Trento in oenological terms is certainly the Chardonnay. Vine introduced for over a century in this mountain corner of Italy, it has found a habitat that is transversal for its production purposes, like nowhere else in the peninsula.
Cantina Toblino, always attentive to biological dynamics and research on quality in the area, thanks to its members and excellent winemakers, has created a Chardonnay, the "Foll" inserted in the selections of this company called "Vènt".
This Chardonnay was born from fermentations in steel and partly in wood, to guarantee that general structure which is then refined partly in amphora together with its skins. The resulting blend, left to rest in steel for many months and as many months in the bottle, gives birth to this wine that reminds the caress of the wind for its freshness and breadth, a wind that characterizes this valley north of Lake Garda, more great protagonist of this unique and identity microclimate.
The hints of almond, combined with melon, citrus notes and white flowers, provides a breadth and at the same time the frankness of the Chardonnay, cared for down to the smallest detail, and then on the palate to be enveloped by a harmonious balance between flavor, acidity and minerality nothing short of stunning.
The years of research are almost wrapped in the aftertaste of this wine, so long and characterful, elegant and complex, thus leaving an indelible memory to the taster.
Excellent combined with stuffed pasta and fish with good structure such as turbot or eel, we accompanied it with an excellent Trentino grain, savoring the wind from the vineyard that accompanied the gaze on these enchanting panoramas.
