Corte Sant’Alda Soave 'Vigne di Mezzane' DOC 2018
'VIGNE DI MEZZANE” is a Soave from a vineyard (about 2.24 hectares) located in Loc. Monte Tombole, near Mezzane di Sotto.
The grapes - Garganega 70%, Trebbiano di Soave 25% & Chardonnay 5% - are only irrigated in exceptional circumstances so that this delightful Soave, thanks also to the stony, chalky terrain and harvesting at precisely the right time of optimal maturing and no later, boasts good acidity and ages well.
Short contact with the skins precedes spontaneous fermentation (native yeasts) partly in wood and partly in steel, with classic oak vats and only partial control of temperatures.
The wine then remains on its yeasts until bottling. An intense yellow colour and bouquet with hints of ripe apples and a classic almond finish, that also comes to the fore in the mouth alongside good body and flavour.'
