A blend of organically farmed Chardonnay and Incrocio Manzoni, partly fermented and aged in terra-cotta amphora, this unusual but intriguing wine opens with aromas of Bartlett pear, pressed white flower and tangerine zest. The aromas carry over to the lively cloudy palate together with a touch of ginger and a hint of sea salt. Bright acidity lends balance.
