Vermentino Toscana IGT

Appellation: Vermentino Toscana IGT Region: Toscana Alcohol: 12.5 % Grapes: 100% Vermentino

Vinification and refinement This wine is produced with Vermentino grapes grown in the low-yielding vineyard of the Tenuta Santa Lucia on coastal Tuscany, near Pisa and the Mediterranean coast. Vermentino is one of the few white grapes that perfectly acclimated to the Mediterranean Tuscany. It loves sea breezes and sunlight and in return provides opulent flavour and radiant freshness. At the arrival to the cellar, the healthy grapes are de-stemmed and softly crushed. By pressing, we obtain different fractions of juice, each of which is cooled to 8 degrees for 24 hours in order to favour the natural decantation. The clear must is then poured into stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place at a temperature not exceeding 12°C. About a month after the fermentation, an accurate assessment of the different lots of wine obtained is made to assemble the selected ones to make the final blend.
