The grapes for the Novità wines are sourced from Italy’s premium wine producing regions, Emilia Romagna and Veneto (Pinot Grigio). Trebbiano and Sangiovese are the archetypical mainstays of many a trattoria and offer delicious easy-drinking alternatives to international varieties, while the Pinot Grigio offers excellent typicity. The Novità collection is made by winemaker Enrico Salvatore of Cevico, one of Italy’s most important wine-making organisations, who own over 6,700 hectares of vines, so consistency of quality is guaranteed.
The vineyard is located in the IGT Rubicone, in the rich and fertile region of Emilia Romagna. The IGT takes its name from the Rubicon River. The Trebbiano vines are planted in clay soils which offer good water retention properties which help to ensure sufficient water supply to the vines during the warm summer. The winters are cool and the summers are warm and dry. The vines are trained according to Guyot or Geneva Double Curtain methods. The vineyard is managed with Integrated Pest Management, which aims to reduce the use of sprays and protects the biodiversity and ecology of the vineyard.
The grapes were briefly macerated on their skins at 10°C followed by gentle pressing. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 19 to 19°C, with a selected yeast strain. The wine was then filtered and left to rest in tank until bottled.
A light, dry and refreshing white wine from the Trebbiano grape, with notes of citrus, acacia flowers and a touch of minerality leading to a zesty and lingering finish.
