Description

Auction Lot Details

tiratore – Italian (ti-ra-tó-re) hunter/marksman

This year we are pleased to offer seven vintages (2018 – 2024) of Tiratore Chardonnay – a complete vertical. Four bottles each of 2018 – 2023 and one magnum of 2024 (available when bottled in 2025).

A single vineyard Chardonnay from the gentle slope, lower terraces and gravel flats of la collina vineyard. When planting these vines, old, spent bullets were found in almost every hole dug on the slope; we imagine this area was used for many years as a
firing range for target practice.
