Fratelli Vitae Chardonnay 2015
Wine Region: India
Straw coloured with light green reflections, the wine has citrus aromas of orange and lemon with subtle notes of white flowers. On the palate, Fratelli Chardonnay exemplifies great balance. It reflects the freshness and minerality of the sandy soils it is grown on. An east-west sun exposure ensures proper ripeness and thus, good acidity. The use of French oak lends roundness and buttery notes on the finish. Elegance and structure combine together to make for a delicious wine that does justice to the varietal.Food pairing Paneer Bhurji, Grilled Whole Fish, Lemon Chicken Piccata.
About the Winery
The word Fratelli translates to mean 'Brothers'. It refers to the coming together of the Secci brothers, Andrea and Alessio from Italy, along with Sekhri brothers Kapil and Gaurav and the Mohite-Patil brothers, Ranjitsinh and Arjunsinh. The name was adopted to represent the desire that each of the promoters nurtured in their hearts - to create a product of truly international standard but one that was made in India using centuries-long Italian wine making traditions. The viticultural and wine-making expertise has been provided by Piero Masi, a leading name in the world of winemaking. Piero is justifiably renowned in Tuscany and is credited with production of some fabulous wines that are acclaimed by connoisseurs and critics alike. Piero's Italian heritage and love of wine are reflected in his commitment towards Fratelli Wines, where he owns a small stake in the business.
