PIEMONTE VIOGNIER D.O.C. (*new label/DOC*)
Refreshing, easy-drinking, fruity white.
TASTING NOTES: Warm, silky, hug-in-a-glass style wine with notes of ripe lime, yellow apple, peach and a hint of pineapple. A soft, quaffable wine that will pair well with chicken or fish, or lightly-spiced food (especially creamy coconut dishes)!
ESTATE: The family-run Ferraris estate is located in Asti, within the Castagnole Monferrato appellation. Winemaker Luca Ferraris ages his boutique wines in a deep cellar that was first built in the 1400s and then expanded and finished by Luca's grandfather. He believes in five elements that characterise his award-winning wines - sun, earth, warmth, scent and aroma. The heritage of the Ferraris estate lives on through the respect Luca shows for both his grandfather's teachings and the land itself.
WINE: A high-quality white wine produced for the first time during the 2006 vintage, our Monferrato Bianco was initially composed of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Sauvignon Blanc, the two most widespread white varieties in the world. But in 2006 we decided to differentiate ourselves from others, so we planted about one hectare of Viognier grapes in a cool area in the district of Casot. Luca was the first and still the only vintner to plant the French variety in Piedmont, producing the first vintage of 4,000 bottles of Viognier wine in 2008. Vinification takes place at about 18 degrees after soft pressing of the grapes. The wine is left to settle for about 12 months in stainless steel tanks where we carry out a weekly “botonage”, stirring the yeast and particles in the wine to prevent oxidation and keep fresh scents. Viognier has a good sense of body and structure with an intense aroma with high notes of exotic fruits. Perfect with fish, fresh cheeses and meats, it is actually suitable for the whole meal.
