Charà chardonnay IGP Salento is one of the flagship products of the Castello Monaci company, in the province of Lecce (Puglia). Produced from Chardonnay vineyards cultivated with spurred cordon on deep and dry clay soils with the presence of tuffaceous limestone. The harvest takes place in two different eras. 70% of the grapes are harvested around the second decade of August and 30% in the second decade of September. After a soft pressing, the first selection of the grapes ferments at low temperature in steel tanks, while the second ferments in barriques. In the first days of February, the blend takes place and the wine then matures in the bottle for about 2 months.
