B.S.T. SAUVIGNON Toscana IGT
THE IDEA These wines are called BABY SUPERTUSCAN because, unlike their “Senior” SuperTuscan cousins, their ageing takes place only in stainless steel. This technique makes them pleasant, fresh and easy to drink; it gives them softness on the palate and fruity notes as well.
THE GRAPE Grapes: Sauvignon varietal wine
IN THE WINERY Vinification: without skin contact after cold static decantation, temperature-controlled at 16°C in stainless steel containers Ageing: “surlie” (on the lees) for at least 4 months Bottle ageing: minimum 2 months
THE WINE Tasting: To the sight: straw yellow with bight reflections and green shades. On the nose: intense varietal scents of pineapple, Sicily citrus fruits, peach and exotic fruits. On the palate: fresh, sourish with bittersweet sensations, elegant, persistent and modern At the table: everything that is white, perfect for happy hours, original and surprising with seafood salads with Mediterranean dressings and finger food First harvest: 2016 Serving temperature: from 9°C with appetizers to 14°C
