Fattoria Corzano e Paterno - Il Corzanello - Bianco 2022
Aljoscha Goldschimdt is the owner and winemaker of Corzano e Paterno. This picturesque estate lies in the commune of San Pancrazio, just outside of Florence. Joshi is a farmer first; his 14 hectares of pristine vineyards are organically tended and are cropped at a low yield. Following the lead of Paolo de Marchi of Isole e Olena, Aljoscha has planted the new, high quality Sangiovese clones with tight spacing in order to create wines of distinction and elegance. In addition to the vineyards, the 200 acre Corzano e Paterno estate crafts olive oils and sheep's milk cheese under Joschi's leadership, though the next generation of his family is taking an increased role in the vineyard and cellar.
The Il Corzanello Bianco is an aromatic and vibrant blend of Chardonnay, Trebbiano, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Petit Manseng. The nose is gorgeous, with light notes of white flowers and lemon curd. It is intensely fruity, yet fresh and mineral. Pair with roasted poultry and all types of seafood as well as an array of different cheeses.
