LVNAE COLLI DE LUNI VERMENTINO 2018
A white wine with great texture and appeal. The colour is an intense straw-yellow with light golden highlights. An elegant aroma with clear hints of wildflowers, aromatic herbs, spices, ripe fruit, honey. Tasty, harmonious and persistent on the palate. Its structure makes it particularly suitable for the most substantial foods of Ligurian cuisine such as stockfish, stewed tripe, poultry, soups and fish. Perfect if served in large goblets glasses to enhance the aromas.
This is a selection from older vines (35 years on average) on hillside with lean clay soils. The traditional characteristics of vermentino are enhanced by the cold maceration (cryomaceration) on the skins which translates into richer and more complex sensations on the nose and in the mouth. All stainless steel. No oak. 3 months on lees.
Aromas range from spring flowers to acacia blossom honey and golden apple. Crisp with a touch of saltyness on the finish.

Vinification: Preferred cold maceration 24-36 hours, soft pressing of the grapes, alcoholic fermentation conducted at controlled temperature and subsequent maturation on its own scum for a few months.
Loaded straw yellow with bright golden reflections. On the nose it turns out full-bodied and of great character, with the hints of mature exotic fruit, yellow peach and disturbing notes of sweet spices. On the palate it reveals a velvety body, warm, enveloping and balanced. Extremely versatile: perfect companion of lean appetizers and delicate first courses, fish, has a structure that allows it to accompany without disfigure dishes such as a baked sea bream or a roast beef.
