Winemaker's Notes:

Cabreo La Pietra (100% Chardonnay) is bright pale gold in color with a marked vanilla nose well integrated with pure, elegant varietal aromas and notes of spice. Very fresh on the palate with rich, buttery varietal fruit, firm backbone and lovely acidic balance, it finishes with a clean, smooth impression of intensity.

Alcohol: 13.5% by volume

About Tenute del Cabreo:

The Tenute del Cabreo are located in Greve in Chianti. Part of its vineyard (Fattoria di Zano) is located right above Greve, consists of approximately 50 hectares planted with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon for the production if "Cabreo il Borgo".

The rest of the vineyards (25 hectares) are located in Panzano (6 Km south of Greve): they are planted with Chardonnay used to produce the 'Cabreo La Pietra".

Cabreo was conceived as an Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) wine in order to take advantage of the flexibility provided by the regulations of this type of classification. It allows the great potential of the Tuscan's terroir to produce a variety of high quality wines.
