Vinification and refinement
From “Il Guado” vineyard, we obtained our white wine "Il Burchino" looking for the fresh expression of the coastal Tuscan winemaking. The Trebbiano basis, carefully vinified at low temperatures, is enriched by a portion of Vermentino grapes that give aromatic complexity and a pleasant acidity while the Viognier grapes give a creamy touch and an intriguing taste of tropical fruits. The grapes are hand-picked and vinified in the cellar of Burchino Estate. After soft pressing, the fermentation of the “mosto fiore” takes place at low temperatures with no contact with the skins.
Colour: Bright with greenish reflections.
Bouquet: Fresh and delicate bouquet with notes of apricot, apple, acacia flowers and tropical fruits.
Taste: On the palate the wine is soft and velvety with pleasant acidity and notes of vanilla and white chocolate at the finish.
Excellent with fish courses, chicken and delicate appetizers. Serve chilled.
The Burchino Estate covers approximately 37 hectares in the village of Terricciola, one of the best areas of the Pisan hills, in the Chianti area. The estate belongs to the Castellani Family since 4 generations; in the old cellar are still preserved documents of the early 1900s harvests. The vineyards are located on the hills with the best exposure and represent a real collection of Cru of the area. The land is extraordinarily rich of fossil shells on a draining and loose mixture of sand and clay, very ancient matrix that refers to the proximity to the sea. Terricciola has always been considered to be the area of production of the best wines of the Pisan Hills and has recently attracted the interest of many investors and producers who have given life to a group of wineries oriented to the research of the highest quality expression. The Castellani Family has made of the Burchino Estate a centre for the preservation of agricultural memory of the area. The best reservas of the family refine in an ancient Etruscan hypogeum dating back to 800 BC, located in the aging cellar.
Ruby red wine with purple reflections. On the nose it has a surprising cleanness with strong notes of cherry and spices. Medium bodied wine, soft and pleasant on the palate showing nice freshness and a good balance of fruit, tannins and acidity. It has a long smooth finish.
Delicate straw yellow colour. The base made with Trebbiano grapes offers a delicate and fresh wine with balsamic and floral notes enriched by fruity and sweet fragrances thanks to the addition of Viognier grapes with typical notes of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and banana. On the palate the sweet fruitiness is balanced by the nice acidity.
