Langhe Sauvignon Blanc, Marchesi Di Gresy, 75cl
A fine and rare Sauvignon Blanc from the Barbaresco zone - with great depth and purity.
Made from Sauvignon grapes cultivated on Marchesi di Grésy's Monte Aribaldo (in the commune of Treiso) and Martinenga (Barbaresco) estate. The vineyards vary from south and north to west-facing but they all have an average altitude of around 250 to 330 metres above sea level. The grapes are destemmed and pressed and the must is cold settled at a low temperature. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at approx. 17 degrees Centigrade for one week. The wine is allowed to develop in the vat for three months before sterile bottling.
Intense and vibrant aromas of passion fruit and citrus - lightly herbal with fine floral characters and notes of freshly-mown hay. Textural, harmonious palate with ripe fruit effortlessly balanced by crisp acidity and mineral notes. A classic style of Sauvignon with excellent depth and length of flavour.
