Blanchett IGT Verona White Wine

Soil: sandy-loamy soil, with a slight presence of stones
Grape growing system: vertical shoot positioning
Vine stocks per hectare: 4500
Vine variety: Trebbiano 70%, Cortese 30%
Harvest time: early October
Method of harvesting: hand-harvesting in large crates suitable for a delicate handling of the grapes

Vinification: grapes are pressed within the day and the
related juice is obtained. Stainless steel thermotanks are filled
with the clarified must and subsequent alcoholic fermentation
induced with selected yeasts and thermally controlled
between 12°C and 14°C for two weeks.
This process is followed by decanting for physical and
organoleptic cleaning and a pre-bottling stop sur lie with
bâtonnage until December.

Tasting and gastronomic notes: straw-yellow color with
golden tinges. Fruity and flowery bouquet with hints of ripe
white peach and white flowers.
Acidity in the structure and bright color are well-balanced on
the palate, this nearly appears like a rot wine. The finish leads
to a pleasant and lasting mineral sensation.
Perfect for appetizer, first courses as well as for backed or
grilled fish. It is also an excellent summer refreshing drink.
Alcohol content: 13 % Vol.
Consumption is recommended within 36 months following
the harvest, wine to be served at 12°C in glasses with medium
