Tonti Family Wines Chardonnay
Winemaker:
Peter Tonti
About the Winemaker:
Growing up in a culture surrounded by Italian winemaking, Peter Tonti has since taken the wine world by storm in a short amount of time. With high demand for his small batch, limited productions and numerous Gold Medal-winning vintages... read his story.
Vineyard:

Until now, Winemaker Peter Tonti of Tonti Family Wines focused exclusively on estate grown Russian River Valley old vine Zinfandel. This is Peter's first Chardonnay offering and vineyard source was carefully selected as per all his wines.

About the Vineyard:
The Redwood Valley in Mendocino County is a cooler area lending it a gradual ripening leading to a nice full flavor profile maturity retaining natural acidity. The vineyard is planted to the much sought after Wente clone, small clusters planted on AXR/1 Rootstock.
Additional Winemaker Notes:
This Unoaked Chardonnay was fermented and aged in stainless steel.
Accolades:
Gold Medal – 2020 San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition

Food Pairing Suggestions:
While Chardonnay easily adapts to the introduction of oak, it really shows off its natural fruit flavors when fermented and aged solely in stainless steel. Try this fresh, fruit driven wine with light dishes like linguini, clams and shrimp scampi. Salads, antipasto, sushi and seafood dishes are also great pairings. Doing a cheese plate? Focus on soft to medium-hard cheeses.
About the Winery
Tonti Family Wines It was a business deal that included Portuguese corks, of all things, that finally gave Peter Tonti the push he needed to follow a longtime dream. Peter's father was from the old country, and it was part of the Italian culture to make wine in the basement. Assisting in the winemaking process and being allowed to sip small amounts of wine as a child was the start of his dream to be just like dad. Learn more
