IGT Bianco Il Bianco - Molino di Sant'Antimo
A zesty aroma invites you to taste this intense yellow wine made from the finest Chardonnay clones to be found in central Italy and planted on the Estate early on, before the Brunello’s world-wide fame. The freshness of the wine are reminiscent of its 8 months spent in steel, with a notable body and minerality that render it an atypical Chardonnay that will also pair well with hearty dishes.
