WHITE WINE “ORGANICO”
“Organico” white wine is produced from the grapes of some old small vineyards located in different areas of Supersano, in the Lecce province, at the foot of a plateau locally called “Madonna of Coelimanna”.
The vineyards have been recovered from abandonment and restored to a microbiological equilibrium, respecting the organic agriculture principles, and they are trained using the traditional “gobelet” technique. The average production is between 20 and 30 quintals per hectare.
Blend: 60% white Trebbiano, 35% white Malvasia and in very small quantities (5%) white Alessano and white Bombino.
Vinification: soft maceration on the skins and soft pressing at a controlled temperature. The pre-fermentation is done at a temperature of 10°C in order to have natural decantation. After pouring it out, the fermentation is done for 10 days at a temperature of 10°C.
Aging Technique: aging in a stainless steel tank for a 6 months period, and for additional 3 months in bottles.
Harvest: hand-harvested on 14th September 2015.
Alcohol content: 12% vol.
Serving temperature: in order to appreciate the organoleptic qualities of this wine, it’s recommended to serve it at a temperature of about 8-10 °C.
