Grape Variety: Manzoni Bianco in purity, the white prince created by Professor Luigi Manzoni who has found its perfect location in the Valle dei Laghi.
Vineyards: a young vineyard of just under 10 years, located at 250m above sea level on a soil of fluvial origin, rich in skeleton, with an important substrate of gravel and pebbles that manages to grow a perfect grape.
Harvest: from early to mid-September, observing the vegetative trend of the plant and following the climatic trend during the year, manual collection and selection of the grapes.
Harvest year: 2018
Vinification & Aging: shortly after the soft pressing of the grapes, the must is partly divided into steel where it undergoes a short fermentation with cold maceration, in terracotta amphorae where it remains in contact with the skins for the next 7 months. At the end of the passage in the amphora, the wine is blended continuing its refinement in steel until bottling, more than 10 months after the harvest. It concludes its refinement in the bottle for a few months, obtaining a perfect balance between aromas and freshness.
Organoleptic Characteristics: bright and brilliant straw yellow, with slight greenish reflections. An intriguing nose with almost tropical aromas and ripe fruit. So we go from quince, yellow peach, ripe pear, up to pineapple and passion fruit. Delicate mineral nuances and light spicy notes. A fresh and balanced entry into the mouth, with a complex, very aromatic palate that envelops with fruity hints. An eternal, persistent finish that leaves great freshness thanks to the good acidity and minerality.
Tasting & Pairing: we recommend tasting in medium-sized glasses at 8-10 ° C, to better appreciate its aromaticity. Excellent with appetizers and first courses based on fish and shellfish, but also with delicate white meats and poultry. Not to be underestimated with fresh cheeses.
Further Aging: from 3 to 5 years, to appreciate its aromatic characteristics more, allowing the wine to evolve and soften its marked acidity.
