Grottaia Vermentino

IGT TOSCANA VERMENTINO

Straw yellow with greenish highlights. The nose opens on intense fruit notes that move towards elegant hints of yellow-fleshed peach followed by floral impressions. The palate is zesty and fruit-rich, and a minerality, classic to the variety, that gives the wine its full flavours and impressive length. Ideal with fish, shellfish, veal, and poultry.

BLEND

Vermentino 85%, Sauvignon Blanc 15%

WEATHER

The 2018 winter was a severe one, with February bringing multiple days of sub-zero temperatures. Spring was marked by substantial rains, which made it challenging to keep up with explosive vine growth and with the high risks of fungal infection. Summer brought relief, with average temperatures and good day-night temperature differentials, all of which contributed to a normal harvest in the vineyards of Caccia al Piano 1868.

VINIFICATION

The grapes were picked by hand and placed in 12kg boxes, then the whole clusters were gently pressed. The must was moved to stainless steel tanks where fermentation proceeded for two weeks at a controlled temperature of 12-14°C. Maturation sur lie followed for several months before bottling, which takes place in the spring after harvest.
