Tenuta San Leonardo
Vette Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Bad weather in Holland. Let’s make the sun shine with this Sauvignon Blanc from Trentino.
Tenuta San Leonardo – Vette Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (89 tsomw points)
Famous of their Bordeaux blends but this white one also impresses me.
A very bright golden color in the glass.
On the nose delicate aromas of lime, gooseberry, peach, grassy with hints of wet rocks, white pepper and mint.
Expressive on the palate but with a great freshness and minerality, ripe fruit, lively acidity and nice length.
AGE OF THE VINES
Variable, from six to fifteen years
YEILD PER HECTAR
The grapes are picked strictly by hand on reaching perfect ripeness in the month of September.
After crushing and destemming, the grapes are vinified without the skins; they then undergo pre-fermentative cold maceration, and soft pressing under the protection of nitrogen. Cold fermentation at 12?C for 12 days.
Pleasing and intriguing as an aperitif, it is an ideal partner for fish dishes (both grilled and smoked), white meats, charcuterie and soft cheeses.
