“…Dreams…” from Chardonnay grapes. Dedicated to U2′s “The Joshua Tree” album (1987) and specifically to the song “Where the streets have no name”. This wine was created with the 1987 harvest and over the years its name has undergone a number of variations. For its first nine years it was called “Where the Dreams have no end…” and it changed the colour of its capsule with every vintage, cycling through the seven colours of the iris (plus white and black) on the label, beginning with white and progressing anticlockwise. The four phases of the moon were also shown. In 1996 it became “Were Dreams, now it is just wine!”, with a blue capsule bearing a stylised Comet Hale-Bopp. It continued in this livery for another seven years. Finally in 2003 we returned to our roots somewhat with: “W…. Dreams ………”, adding the year of harvest below and drawing Mars on the capsule. And the dot-dot-dot in the name? Our interpretation of the full name is “Where Dreams can happen”, but everyone can bring their own interpretation to it.
The “Where the Dreams have no end…” label was used in the hit Disney film “The Parent Trap” (1998), directed by Nancy Meyers and starring Natasha Richardson, Dennis Quaid and Lindsay Lohan (twice, playing twins).
Type of terrain: marly sandstone.
Made with grapes: 97% Chardonnay
Alcohol content: 13,5%
Type of bottle: With Stelvin-model screw cap made by Pechiney in France: we selected this high-technology cap to preserve all the fragrance and organoleptic qualities obtained first in the vineyard and later in the cellar, and to keep out foreign tastes or odours deriving from cork-wood bark or, worse, the chemical washing that the cork is subjected to. Maturing: 11 months in small 300-litre barrels made from French oak.
Tasting notes: It has a sparkling straw-yellow colour. To the nose it offers charm and complexity, with aromas of rare elegance and refinement. Exotic hints of ripened fruit, melted butter, vanilla and pastry prevail. In the mouth it keeps all the promises made to the nose, follows through on them, and embellishes them with gentle flavours and aromatic nuances that are fresh and persistent.
Serving temperature: 14/16°C
