Tasting notes

Light and pale straw in colour, the bag in box system ensures that the freshness of this delicately perfumed, fragrant wine is perfectly preserved. Lovely, clean, almond blossom aromas give way to a lively, citrus fruit character on the palate, with enough body to round out the crisp acidity. Soft, almondy flavours linger on the finish.

Vinyards

The fruit for this wine is grown on the slopes of vineyards situated next to the Soave zone in the Val d'Alpone. The vineyards have excellent south east exposure, with soils of volcanic origin.

Vinification

The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and crushed and pumped to the press with no sulphur addition. The juice was chilled immediately and naturally settled. Cultured yeasts were added to initiate fermentation, which took place around 14°C in order to retain the pure fruit flavours. The wine was released young to preserve freshness.

Producer

These wines are made by Matt Thomson at the Cantina di Monteforte. Verona's 'Ponte Pietra' (stone bridge) dates back to Roman times, although vines have been planted on the hills outside of Verona for much longer than this bridge has spanned the Adige River.
