Chardonnay Tasca d’Almerita Vigna San Francesco 2020 Cl 75


Tasca d’Almerita Vigna San Francesco Chardonnay was born when in 1985 Lucio Tasca d’Almerita decided to confront the world’s most celebrated white grape variety. After initial experimentation with rooted cuttings that had also arrived from Burgundy, he planted 5 hectares of Chardonnay on the lower part of the San Francesco hill, at about 500 meters above sea level, with rich soils originating from sediments of riverine origin suitable for structured white grapes. Able to combine the more savory and fresh side with good balance.

Harvest 2020

One of the most stimulating challenges for company managers. The project to create a wine of superior quality and rank by employing the most celebrated and popular white grape variety on a planetary scale was born in the mid-1980s. The San Francesco vineyard was planted in 1985 by Lucio Tasca, in the lower portion of the slope, on soil that is more fertile than the average Regaleali because of a deeper active layer and greater freshness, due to less rainwater drainage.
The clonal material comes partly from Burgundy. The plot covers about 5 hectares, with a planting spacing of 2.60 meters by 1.20 meters (3,200 plants per hectare), at an altitude of 520 to 532 meters. The source substrate is clayey-sandy sediment, the texture is loamy-clayey, weakly calcareous, with slightly alkaline reaction (pH 8.1). It is a thick, well-textured soil, but the roots are not more than 70 centimeters deep.
The soil has a normal organic matter content and is rich in minerals, magnesium and potassium in particular, with a good endowment in phosphorus. The vines are kept in espalier, double Guyot training form.
The grapes are fermented in 350-liter French oak barrels, with batonnage daily for the first 10-15 days, then weekly for the remaining 8 months of aging. Chardonnay is a very early variety and in Regaleali it usually reaches maturity between late August and early September, with little variation from vintage to vintage.
