From one of the most suitable areas in Tuscany for the production of white wines, at altitudes that reach 700 metres, comes a superbly elegant and refined blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco.
The spring in Castello Pomino was rainy. In the months of March, April and May alone, around 420 mm of rainfall was recorded, more than double in comparison with the same period of the previous year. Sprouting of new shoots on the vines finished in the second week of April, in line with the Pomino average, while flowering came slightly earlier than expected. The veraison of the vines began in the second half of July, gradually coming to an end in the first ten days of August. The alternation of sun and light summer rainfall enabled the Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco grapes to reach excellent ripeness. The temperature changes during harvest helped combine the aromas and maintain the freshness typical of Castello di Pomino grapes.

With its bright straw-yellow colour and incredibly delicate golden highlights, Pomino Bianco 2018 is extremely elegant and delicate to behold. The bouquet is just as delicate, with gentle floral aromas that are balanced out wonderfully with fruity notes. White flowers, green apple, pear, grapefruit and the very many facets of citrus fruits combine, giving way to an extremely well-balanced nose. On the palate, it is pleasantly fresh yet soft. A long and persistent finish.
A fine wine for aperitifs, vegetarian antipasti, or large fish, such as salmon
