Bianco Di Ornella IGT Veneto
Late harvest of Verduzzo with addition of Sauvignon and Traminer passiti, variable percentages depending on the year.
Vineyards of Campo di Pietra, Piave river basin, to the south east of Treviso.
For the Verduzzo grapes over-maturation on the plant and late harvesting at the end of October. For the Sauvignon and Traminer grapes harvesting is carried out during the first ten days of September and drying continues in the drying room until the end of December.
Pneumatic pressing of whole grape.
In tonneau for approximately 24 months where it remains in contact with its own ferment. Then it spends several months in stainless steel vats, where it is clarified; finally it is aged in bottles for another year. Golden yellow in colour, dense with a bouquet reminiscent of dried grapes and candied fruit. Sweettasting, with balanced body and excellent mellowness.
It is a wine for meditation, ideally suited with biscuits. Excellent with game paté and blue cheeses.
