A fresh modern blend of Trebbiano and Pinot Bianco with the clean minerality and white flower freshness of the Trebbiano blending beautifully with the tropical fruit style of the Pinot Bianco; a great combination.
These wines are produced by Italy's fastest-growing wine company, the superb Gruppo Cevico, based in Italy's heartland in Emilia Romagna. These Churchyard wines - the translation of the name reflects the fact that many ancient European wineries were owned by the Church - have proved a huge hit with UK customers since their introduction in 2012 when WIV was looking for some stylish looking wines (after all, we are talking about Italy!) which would look good on any restaurant table.
Each grape variety is vinified separately. Maceration on the skins at 10C lasting 12 hours. Soft pressing of the grapes; fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 15C. The wine is left on its fine lees for 4 months in stainless steel tanks with daily stirrings. The wine is then filtered and blended and left to rest in tank until bottled.
Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish, seafood, poultry and light pasta dishes.
Trebbiano 70%, Pinot Bianco 30%
