Wine Abrigo Giovanni, Langhe Favorita, 2017
Straw yellow colour with greenish highlights, slightly sparkling, characterised by primary aromas accentuated by carbon dioxide. Evident scents of wild flowers, wild herbs, green apple and pear stand out. It continues, especially after the first six months of life, with tertiary aromas typical of the time spent on yeasts, with a slight scent of bread. The well-balanced palate has a mineral taste, resulting in a wine that is very crisp and easy to drink. The perfect aperitif and excellent companion for cold antipasti, crudites and seasonal fruit.
Elegant, crispy, between mineral and fruitness, very refreshing and tropical. No wood ageing
Greenish straw yellow. Slightly effervescent, light, refreshing. Evident scents of wildflowers, wild herbs, green apple and pear stand out. The well-balanced palate has a mineral taste, resulting in a wine that is very crisp and easy to drink. Perfect wine at the beach and picnic.
The perfect aperitif and excellent companion for cold antipasti, crudités and seasonal fruit. We love it with fresh oysters.
A blend of grapes from three different vineyards in the municipality of Diano d'Alba, soil consisting typically of clay and limestone, characterised by layers of more or less compact sand alternating with grey sandstones (sands compacted and cemented by marine water carbonates), known as Arenarie di Diano or Diano Sandstones. Different exposures: mainly north-easterly, then north-westerly and south-westerly. Altitude 300-400m above sea level. Typical espalier vineyards and Guyot pruning, average plant density of 4000-4300 vines per hectare.
Soft pressing of whole bunches with a pneumatic lung press and separation of the must. We only use the free-run juice. Fining by flotation at low temperatures and direct racking. Fermentation in pressurised stainless steel tanks at a low temperature (15-17'C) for about 20 days. The combination with carbon dioxide takes place towards the end of the primary alcoholic fermentation in closed tanks.
