Osme, the perfume, is the name of this sought-after white wine, which owes its intensely fruity and delicately floral notes to the tuff, clay and volcanic terrain of Basilicata.
Our Chardonnay OSME is vinified in purity, with careful selection of grapes that are hand picked between the last ten days of August and the first ten days of September.
The fermentation takes place in 30hl vats at a controlled temperature, with aging in French oak barrels, leaving the lees in suspension for around 2 months. The wine is then transferred into the bottle and aged for at least 4 months.
The special care taken over the vinification helps the wine to preserve its organoleptic characteristics for many years. An intense, bright golden yellow colour, with greenish reflections. It is intense, broad and delicately floral to the nose, with light aromatic hints of honey and dried fruit.
On the palate it is complex and soft, pleasantly dry and harmonious, with mineral notes of a sought-after elegance. Perfect for all types of light starters, it goes particularly well with seafood and pairs excellently with fish and white meat dishes.
