Winemaker's Notes

100% Vermentino from vineyards in Tenuta Belvedere near Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast, south of Livorno.

This wine has an accentuated personality and results straw gold in colour with intense, fruity aromas. On the palate is full, armonic and with a long finish.

The grapes coming from vineyards on the Tenuta Guado al Tasso Estate, were harvested in the early hours of the morning and, in order to give a good structure and aromas, a small quantity were vinified with the "crio-maceration" method (the must remains in contact with skins for almost 6 hours at a temperature of 5°C) and the other quantity were gently pressed. The two parts of must were then cooled down to induce natural clarification. The wine was then racked and the alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature which was kept below 18°C. The wine obtained is stored in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature until bottling. The vinification techniques employed have made it possible to enhance aromas and the typical varietal structure.
