Monte delle Vigne is in Emilia Romagna, located on gentle hills that slope down from a height of 300 meters to the right bank of the river Taro, deep soils rich in clay and limestone and night breezes that lower summer temperatures make this place a unique terroir. High-density planting, 6,000 plants per hectare, with a strain production that does not exceed 1,5 kg of grapes. Each plant has a productive natural balance that let it express the most of its production potential.  

Tasting Notes

This is a still and dry white e wine obtained from pure Malvasia di Candia Aromatica grapes grown on east facing slopes at 320/300 mts.  The soil here is rich in clay and calcium.  The wine rests for six months in stainless steel after primary fermentation with battonage (lees stirring) for added creaminess and texture. It is an intriguing and intense wine with floral notes, balsamic and stone fruit.  The palate shows fruit, flowers and minerality with a pleasing soft texture.  This is a “gastronomic” wine and can be the secret weapon in creating a sensational wine and food pairing.  Serve this wine at 10 -12 C with shellfish, cured meats and ham and foie gras.

Reviews

  1. 3

    This is a wine that is big on the nose – grass, orange peel with intense floral tones, big on the palate – long finish, bright acidity, and big in the glass with 13.5% alcohol. Taste some Mediterranean history.
