SAN VINCENZO ANSELMI BIANCO 2017
In the annals of winemaking, Roberto Anselmi with an uncompromising quality-over-quantity approach has helped redefine the image of north Italian white wines. His San Vincenzo Bianco falls outside the bounds to be classifed as Soave due to the introduction of 30% Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc into the blend with the local King variety Garganega and is instead labelled Veneto IGT.
Made in the Soave hills on a 54 hectare site around the village of Monteforte d'Alpone, San Vincenzo is a beautiful dry white with a straw yellow colour. After fermentation the wine is matured for 6 months in steel on natural yeasts without decanting, with lee's stirring taking place periodically. Aging takes place in bottle for 3 months prior to release.
The result is a wine which has an expressive and intensely fruity nose, with mineral and citrus notes in which you can recognize hints of apple and lemon, while the palate has a texture and weight rarely found in wines from this part of Italy. A very fine wine, very pleasant, persistent and well balanced
Try with dishes based on fish and vegetables.
