The grapes for the Novità wines are sourced from Italy’s premium wine producing regions, Emilia Romagna and Veneto (Pinot Grigio). Trebbiano and Sangiovese are the archetypical mainstays of many a trattoria and offer delicious easy-drinking alternatives to international varieties, while the Pinot Grigio offers excellent typicity. The Novità collection is made by winemaker Enrico Salvatore of Cevico, one of Italy’s most important wine-making organisations, who own over 6,700 hectares of vines, so consistency of quality is guaranteed.
A very mild winter resulted in an early start to the growing season. Low rainfall during spring resulted in reduced yields. However, hot and dry weather conditions during the summer growing season produced ripe and healthy grapes with vibrant fruit flavours and excellent varietal characteristics.
The vines are on average 10 years old and are trained according to the Guyot method. They are grown in volcanic soils, which are known for imparting fresh and mineral qualities to the resulting wines.
The grapes underwent skin contact maceration for 10 hours prior to being gently pressed. Cool fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 18°C with carefully selected yeasts. The wine was left to rest in tank to retain the purity of fruit until it was prepared for bottling.
Pretty pink colour, the wine is fruity with aromas of red fruits complemented by notes of rose petal, grapefruit zest and a hint of minerality. Fresh, off dry and a very drinkable style.
Chilled as an apéritif or with light dishes. An ideal summer wine.
