Pitti BrutChardonnay Charmat
Lying at the feet of the Pisan hills and dominated by the millenary Tower-House, Torre a Cenaia Estate has been for centuries the benchmark of the wine production of this fertile land, which has one of the most suitable soil and climate area of the western Tuscany. Ancient property of the Florentine Pitti family, it reflects the heritage handing down to posterity the pride and the noble history, embodied today in wines with a unique personality, deeply tuscan.
A rigorous selection of grapes gives to this Chardonnay Brut, obtained with the Charmat method, a light straw color with greenish reflections and a fresh and delicate taste. The fine and persistent perlage gives it a refined elegance.
