It was in the 1990s that Nonno Mario ingeniously drew upon the Malverzana, the grape variety most exposed to the sun. A fresh, persistent taste, well bodied, with a balanced acidity and a dry, fruity flavour.
PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION (IGT)
Grape Varieties: Vermentino
Soil: Sandy mix (90%), very light coloured, shallow.
Vine Density: 4,200 plants per hectare.
Planting System: Guyot, staked at 90 cm.
Production per Hectare: 8000 kg.
Production Technique: The grapes are transported to the
winery after harvesting by hand. After careful selection, they are
stripped and pressed. The must is clarified and fermentation is
brought to a controlled temperature of 15-16°C in steel.
After fermentation, the coarser sediment is racked away and
aging begins on the fine sediment with weekly stirring until
Bottles produced: 10,000 per harvest
Light straw yellow. Well structured. The first
hit of the bouquet expresses the fruity part dominated by the
fragrance of Golden Delicious apple, followed by a slightly sweet
floral taste of broom and completed by hints of crushed tomato
Accompaniments: Not forgetting the inseparable pairing of
fish-Vermentino, the good structure also makes it an excellent
match for white farmyard meats such as chicken, rabbit and
turkey, cooked according to Tuscan tradition.
A strong supporting act to the classic Tuscan antipasto,
including the difficult-to-match chicken liver crostini. It also does
a fine job of accompanying seafood and vegetable starters.
