Schola Sarmenti ‘Candora’ Chardonnay 2021




This is a wonderfully pure expression of Chardonnay, from organically farmed vineyards in southern Italy’s Salento region.

Pale, glinting gold in appearance, this is highly aromatic, delivering intense aromas of fresh flowers, tropical fruits and a subtle hint of vanilla. The palate is dry and rich, coating your mouth with velvety tannins and allowing tropical fruit flavours of mango, guava and galia melon to unroll on a long, refreshing finish.

100% steel-fermented and matured for maximum fruit expression.

  • Dry, rich, fruity
  • 750 ml.

Producer: Schola Sarmenti

Schola Sarmenti, a stunning winery with soaring ceilings sculpted from local tuff and lecce stone, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is run by the Marra and Calabrese families. The vineyards are farmed organically and within sight of the warm waters of the Adriatic. Schola Sarmenti practises "green harvesting", where a portion of the immature crop is sacrificed (i.e. picked and discarded) mid-season to increase the ripeness and quality of the remaining bunches. It also uses the ancient Puglian vine training system, Alberello.
