Description

Chardonnay is the most famous white grape variety in the world, able to express in a particular way the different terroirs where it is grown. In Salento, Chardonnay is known for its delicate tropical fruit aromas and structured body, with the proper freshness needed to perfectly pair Apulian foods.

HARVEST: The bunches of Battigia are harvested in the early hours of dawn around the first ten days of August, avoiding the typical high temperatures of Salento summer to maintain freshness and aromaticity in the wine.

Punteggio

Cantine Paololeo

If it is true that behind every bottle of wine there is always a nice story to tell, the one of Paololeo wines is a simple but beautiful story, just like all the family stories are.

Today Paololeo winery is a modern company: it covers an area of 17,000 square meters and is equipped with a very modern winemaking system, a large barrel room and a cutting-edge bottling line capable of bottling  7000 bottles per hour.

However, the "heart" of all the current area under vines are still those 25 hectares where, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great-grandfather began to vinify his grapes in Masseria Monticello. Then his nephew Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the winery.

Today it is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
