Vermentino: doc colline lucchesi
Variety: Certified organic vermentino grapes.
Vinification and aging: Grapes are first hand harvested followed by maceration. Grapes are soft pressed using a pneumatic press; which soft presses the grapes with gentle air pressure. The total duration of time fluctuates due to the vintage year. The juice is then fermented at controlled temperatures in concrete and stainless steel vats. The fermentation occurs spontaneously after the pied de cuve (vineyard-specific yeast to initiate fermentation) is added from the vineyard. Aging takes place on the lees for 4 months followed by clarification and filtration.
This authentic Vermentino is truly versatile, ideal with appetizers of all styles, seafood, pasta and light meat dishes. The complex flavors in this wine make an excellent compliment to spicy fare. Suggested serving temperature between 10°C and 12°C
