La Roncaia Eclisse Bianco 2016

Origin: estate vineyards in the municipalities of Tarcento and Attimis.

Grapes: selection of the best grapes of Sauvignon and Picolit.

Soil and vineyard: marly soil of Eocene origin. The vineyard is planted with 3.200-4.000 single Guyot-trained vines per hectare.

Vinification: each vine is harvested in order to reach a perfect maturation. Fermentation occurs separately for each grape variety, part in temperaturecontrolled (max 18˚C) stainless-steel vats and part in Allier oak barriques. The long contact with fine lees allows to produce a wine with great extract and aromatic complexity. Once assembled, “Eclisse” cuvèe further ages in temperature-controlled steel vats until bottling. Then, the wine ages in horizontally placed bottles to reach its perfect evolution.

Appearance: deep straw-yellow.

Nose: a heady smell joining Sauvignon elegant aromaticness and Picolit fruit complex richness; green scents, perfumes of wild flowers and white pulp fruits, such as peach, merge in a fascinating fragrance.

Palate: freshness and minerality combine with a good smoothness, in a body showing harmony, big depth and persistence.

Alcoholic strength: 14% vol.

Ideal serving temperature: 10-12˚C.

Pairings: shellfish, either raw or steamed fish
