Tasting notes

In spring 2020, the vines sprouted evenly and early, no doubt due to the mild winter period during which temperatures were never bitterly cold. The shoots grew evenly and the leaves were bright green from the offset: a clear sign that the plants were healthy. In the two months prior to harvesting, while the grapes were ripening, the remaining period saw regular rainfall and abundant sunshine. The harvesting of the Pomino Bianco grapes began in early September: when tasted, the berries were crisp with decent acidity. The first bunches to arrive in the cellar were in perfect condition and the grapes harvested in the following weeks were no different: the warm, dry days in September yielded fruit of the highest quality until the end of the harvest.

Wine Variety: Predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco, with small quantities of complimentary varieties

Maturation: wooden barrels (partially)

Alcohol content: 12,5%

Vinification and ageing: The grapes were harvested with the utmost care and attention. The care taken in the vineyard and subsequent processing in the cellar helped to ensure outstanding quality. From the moment they arrived at the cellar, the grapes and, consequently, the musts were processed, with exposure to oxygen kept to a minimum. The pressing cycles were selected to ensure gentle extraction of the musts. Alcoholic fermentation took place in steel tanks and, partially, in French oak barriques, all at a controlled temperature. At the end of production, Pomino Bianco was left to age in the bottle. Only after this subsequent period was the wine ready to tantalise the taste buds with its structure and explosive freshness.

Organoleptic Notes: Visually, the wine is clear and bright. The glowing hues in the glass recall the bright sunny days of the 2020 harvest at the Castello Pomino estate. Like the colourful blossoming of flowers in spring, the bouquet is rich with floral notes, with honeysuckle as the prevalent aroma. The aromas of Pomino Bianco are markedly persistent when you taste it. This is, in part, thanks to the wine being aged on lees in the months following vinification.

Available formats: 75 cl; 1.5 L (Magnum)
