Bianco di Trinoro 2017
ABOUT THE VINTAGE
In 2017, we picked on the 31st of August and the grapes were then whole cluster pressed by hand on a small vertical press and run into stainless steel, where it was fermented at 22°C. The white juice was then decanted again and run into glass demi-johns, where it stayed on the lees until bottling the following July. It will remain in bottle until next February when it will released.
2017 was a drought year throughout Italy, and the resulting wines have a great density and concentration. There is a sweet fruit character to the semillon of this vintage, even though it was fermented totally dry. Its deep golden color gives way to a rich, sweet golden apple nose, with floral notes reminiscent of jasmine. On the palate, there is a lovely freshness that comes from its high and bright acidity, which cuts through its fuller body. Overall, it’s a very together white: a ripe and round texture, tightly knit, and full of tension. This interplay of textures provides a particularly compelling contrast with its ripe, fruity character. We produced approximately 1,000 bottles this vintage.
