Manzoni Bianco IGT Marca Trevigiana
100% Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13.
Soil and vineyards
Clayey soil, rich in mineral salts; planting density of 5,000 vines per hectare, with Guyot pruning, for a limited yield per hectare.
Manual harvesting in the first week of September.
Vinification and ageing
The manual harvest begins once the grapes have reached the optimum levels of total acidity and sugars; they are then destemmed and undergo a short period of cold maceration. The fermentation of the must is then carried out at a controlled temperature (18°C) in stainless-steel tanks. The wine remains on its yeasts, in stainless-steel tanks, until the spring. After in-bottle ageing for at least 6 months, the wine is ready to be released onto the market.
Complete maturation is reached after 10-12 months of in-bottle ageing.
Straw-yellow colour, tending towards gold with age; the bouquet is a fusion – the predominant elements being dependent on the soil, the vintage and that year’s weather – of the characteristically elegant nuances of Pinot and the delicately aromatic undertones of Rhine Riesling; the palate is rounded, fresh, full-flavoured and wonderfully balanced.
