Aljoscha Goldschimdt is the owner and winemaker of Corzano e Paterno. This picturesque estate lies in the commune of San Pancrazio, just outside of Florence. Joshi is a farmer first; his 14 hectare of pristine vineyards are organically tended and are cropped at a low yield. Corzano e Paterno is an organic farm in northern Chianti, making cheese from the milk of 800 Sardinian sheep on one side of the property and making mostly Chianti on the other. The white wine is a rarity with only 800 cases produced.
The Il Corzanello Bianco is a blend of six varieties, each variety adding it’s own special character to this aromatic, zippy Tuscan white. It’s intensely fruit yet fresh and mineral with a long finish. This “Chianti Bianco” in 2019 is super, absolutely perfect with just about anything outdoors!
The 2018 is jump-out-of-the-glass aromatic, with peachy-juicy fruit and zippy acidity that makes it both the best of apertifs and incredibly versatile at the table.
Perfect outside on the deck or by the pool, it’s great with cheese and dried meats as well as appetizers and salads.
