TASTING NOTES
From the unusual meeting of Chardonnay & Riesling Renano from the vineyards within the Tenuta La Palazza, the white of the Drei Donà house is born, expression and white exception of a terroir of great reds. The Chardonnay and Rhein Riesling vineyards were born from the futurist vision of Claudio Drei Donà, while the combination of the two grapes in this unusual cuvèe was born from an intuition of his son Enrico. After 18 hours of cold maceration in contact with the skins, the Riesling Renano and Chardonnay are vinified separately in stainless steel at a controlled temperature. Only 10% of the Chardonnay is fermented in French wooden tonneaux for about 30 days at a controlled temperature. The malolactic fermentation is done only on some tanks, in order to better balance the acidity of the finished product. The individual parcels vinified separately are also aged sur lie for a period of about 3-4 months, both in the tonneaux and in the steel tanks. After the creation of the cuvée the Tornese is left to rest in steel for a month and then refined for at least 3 months in the bottle. A white surprise from a terroir known above all for its great reds.

Drei Donà

Drei Donà Discover the Drei Donà Winery in Emilia-Romagna and its fine wines in our online store The Tenuta La Palazza was built between the cities of Forlì and Predappio in a strategic position between the valleys of the Montone and Rabbi rivers, around one of the watchtowers that Caterina Sforza ordered to build to defend her possessions. The estate, owned by the Counts Drei Donà since 1923, has always been dedicated to the production of Sangiovese grapes. The company underwent a radical transformation in 1979, when Claudio Drei Donà took over the management, together with his son Enrico. Of the 23 hectares cultivated under organic farming, the majority is dedicated to the Sangiovese vineyards from which the classic Predappio Doc "Notturno" and the Riserva "Vigna del Pruno ” are produced. The futurist vision of Count Claudio also gave birth to "Il Tornese" , the first great white wine from international grapes in Romagna and the red "Magnificat" , a "single vineyard" from the first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in this region. The particular names of the wines deserve a mention: in fact, they were baptized with the names of the horses of the small family breeding farm.
