Maleto is produced from our Chardonnay grapes: they are selected and harvested by hand in the mid-late August.

It is a wine suitable for any occasion and combination.

It can be drunk young, but it can express its best after a 2-3 year aging in the bottle.

Vinification method

Chardonnay grapes are vinified in white at controlled temperature at 15-18 ° in stainless steel tanks.

When the vintage is favorable, we use a small percentage of skins on the total mass with a subsequent slow ripening.

Subsequently, it is aged inside stainless steel tanks for at least 6 months and then finishes the refinement in the bottle for another 2 months.

Characteristics Land and Vineyard

Our Chardonnay vineyards were planted in 2007 in medium-textured soils predominantly clayey with sand and silt.

The surface of the vineyard is about 2 hectares and organic certification is underway.

The grapes come from the Poggio farms in the hills of San Pietro di Ozzano in the Colli d ’Imola Doc area at an altitude of 80 – 90 m.s.l.m. with the rows oriented from east to west.

The favorable and particular microclimate, characterized by a high day-night temperature range and excellent ventilation even in summer, allows us to obtain high quality grapes and complex wines characterized by high acidity, freshness and longevity

Gastronomic combinations

Chardonnay Maleto is a very versatile wine suitable for any type of pairing.

Excellent to taste paired with fish dishes, appetizers or vegetable dishes.

Also ideal to taste paired with first courses with white meat sauce.
