Colli di Luni Vermentino Cavagino 2018
The Cavagino di Lunae represents one of the maximum expressions among the Italian Vermentini. It is born in vineyards located in Castelnuovo Magra and Ortonovo, in the extraordinary terroir of the Colli di Luni, south of the Magra river, on the border between Liguria and Tuscany.
It is produced with 100% Vermentino grapes, harvested only by hand during the middle of September and selected in the cellar. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 60% of the must and in barrique for the remaining 30%. It follows a period of aging in steel and the bottling phase.
It is characterized by an intense straw yellow color, with golden reflections. The nose opens with a broad and persuasive fruity aroma, with notes of apple, pear and papaya that blend with balsamic and honey sensations. In the mouth it is full and vigorous, with a captivating softness and a marked minerality.
To be tasted in the first 3-4 years of life, it is perfect to accompany typical Ligurian dishes, such as rabbit or stockfish. Special with elaborate fish dishes, sweet meats and medium-aged cheeses.
