Description

Benefizio Riserva recounts the history of Chardonnay in Tuscany. This grape variety was introduced to Castello di Pomino’s vineyards in 1855, and by 1878 the Estate had received the gold medal at the Paris Expo for the quality of its wines. In 1973, at a vineyard located 700 metres above sea level, Benefizio was born: the first white wine in Italy to be fermented in barriques. With the 2005 harvest, Benefizio acquired the title “Riserva”, or “Reserve”. Elegance, finesse and body are the defining elements of the Benefizio 2018. The colour is atypical pale yellow with golden reflections. Its bouquet is both delicate and persistent. The refined aromatic variety is highly impressive with its development over time. Notes of orange blossom, magnolia and gorse soon give way to citrus aromas of candied and dried fruit. Gentle spice alongside the tertiary notes produced during refinement conclude this astounding olfactory journey. Its structure is confirmed by an alcoholic note, perfectly balanced and harmonised by freshness. The finish is long and persistent.
