A high-quality white wine produced for
the first time during the 2006 vintage, our Monferrato Bianco was
initially composed of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Sauvignon Blanc, the two
most widespread white varieties in the world.
But in 2006 we decided to differentiate
ourselves from others, so we planted about one hectare of Viognier
garpes in a cool area in the district of Casot. Luca was the first and
still the only vintner to plant the French variety in Piedmont,
producing the first vintage of 4,000 bottles of Viognier wine in 2008.
Vinification takes place at about 18
degrees after soft pressing of the grapes. The wine is left to settle
for about 12 months in stainless steel tanks where we carry out a weekly
“botonage”, stirring the yeast and particles in the wine to prevent
oxidation and keep fresh scents.
Viognier has a good sense of body and structure with an intense aroma with high notes of exotic fruits.
Perfect with fish, fresh cheeses and meats, it is actually suitable for the whole meal.
