Curtefranca Bianco Contadi Castaldi 2021

The Curtefranca White by Contadi Castaldi is a white Lombard wine from the Franciacorta wine area made entirely from Chardonnay grapes which is aged for 7 months in stainless steel tanks for 70% of the mass and the remainder in oak barrels. It presents itself with a bright straw-colored garment and expresses notes of tropical fruit, white flowers, almonds and vanilla on the nose, while at the taste it is fresh, savory and with a fragrant persistence

Glass

Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
