Sottovenda – IGT Veneto Manzoni Bianco

Sottovenda is the name of a road, in an area that we consider special and therefore also of a wine. On the south-east slope of the Monte Venda, 400 meters above sea level, the ground is a varied interweaving of volcanic breccia, clay, marl and trachytis: a cru where we chose to plant the white varieties that best translate these features in minerality and structure.
Manzoni Blanc and a small part of Riesling and Pinella give life to this mineral, persistent and long-lived white wine.

Vineyard
It is on the south-east slope of Monte Venda, on cool, well drained and deep soil. Aside the first plant of 1987 we have joined new, rather densely planted vineyards in 2006 and 2010.

Vinification
It ferments and matures in large and old oak barrels, where it remains for several months on its lees. Then it decants for 10-12 months in cement tanks, to be finally bottled after almost 2 yers from the harvest. It is not clarified nor filtered.

Service and pairing
Serve at 12-14 °C. It improves evidently in the first years of life, we recommend drinking it between the 3rd and the 5th year. Tasty pairing with baked turbot with potatoes.
