Vinification | Aging
The must was then left on the skins for 20 hours at a temperature of 11°-12° C in tanks especially designed to protect it from oxygen by using recycled carbon dioxide from the ﬁrst fermentation, in order to avoid using high levels of antioxidants. Subsequently, 20% of the must fermented and aged on the lees for 5 months in 20-27 hl barrels and the remaining part in stainless steel vats.
The wine was then blended and bottled during full moons between the end of March and June 2021.
This wine’s complexity is incredible, as well as the magical sensations that derive from it. The olfactory characteristics are those typical of Sauvignon in cold climates: intense and elegant aromas of elderberry, gooseberry, tomato leaf, green pepper, boxwood and cedar, secondly enriched with citrus nuances of lime and grapefruit, mineral flint tones and light smoky notes.
In the palate the wine follows and amplifies the scents perceived by the nose, in particular the uniqueness of tomato leaf, the freshness of citrus fruits and the acidity and minerality typical of Collio, offering a pleasant sip with persistent intensity, full-bodied and creamy but also sharp and well-balanced. The finish is long, velvety and soft. Ronco delle Mele represents the desire to produce a very typical and savory wine, impeccable for precision and style.
