In a Nutshell

Fantastic Vermentino blend resulting from a partnership between Santadi and Tenuta San Guido's winemaker

Tasting Notes

Incredibly fresh and zesty this is going to make perfect summer drinking. Tropical fruit aromas with notes of citrus and a hint of sage and herbs. Refreshing acidity with concentrated pear, apple and apricot flavours. Whilst primarily about crisp fruit characters there is a touch of minerality and almost waxy texture here.

Production Notes

Grapes are transferred to the winery on small boxes cooled down by dry ice to keep them at a lower temperature; then the grapes are carried straight to the press (without crushing) where in a cold and static environment we obtain a fine first-pressed juice. Subsequently, the static decantation allows to implant selected yeasts on the pure must. Prolonged fermentation at a controlled temperature (16 °C) helps to keep the wine “fining” on the fermentation-lees for approximately 40 days. The product is frequently pumped over to optimise the fermentation process. The vinification is done separately for each varietal on stainless still vats. On a second stage, the Vermentino and Chardonnay wines are blended together; this blend will then rest on small concrete vats for about 3 months to complete the maturation and a natural stabilization of Samas, which is not filtered nor clarified.
