Count of the IGT Viper

Format (cl):
The time of the harvesting of the Sauvignon Blanc was chosen according to the ratio between sugar concentration and maximum expression of the varietal aromas of the grapes. The vineyards destined for the Count of Viper, are located at a height ranging from 250 to 350 m s.l.m. in soils rich in marine fossil sediments with clay infiltrations conferring minerality and sapidity to the grapes. The collected bunches were immediately transferred to the cellar and cooled through the passage in a refrigerated conveyor that lowered its temperature before pressing (this is important to keep the varietal characteristics unaffected). A part of the Sauvignon Blanc has carried out a cold maceration for a few hours in dedicated reservoirs in order to obtain the maximum extraction of perfumes from the husks. After the soft pressing, the must has been maintained for a few hours at a temperature of 10 °C to ill-plant in a natural way before fermentation. It was then swept into stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature, where the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature took place, not more than 16 °C. Completed this operation the wine has been stored at low temperature (about 10 °C) to prevent the conduct of malolactic fermentation and to preserve the organoleptic characteristics. The Sauvignon Blanc was then assembled with a small amount of Semillon wine to accentuate its flavour and opened up to it contextually to an improvement of the aromatic part.
