Masi Garganega-Sauvignon Veneto Serègo Alighieri Bianco Delle Possessioni 2005
Grape varieties Garganega 75%, Sauvignon Blanc 25%. Wine making Garganega and Sauvignon Blanc are harvested and vinified separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (12-16°C). Selected yeasts are used. The Sauvignon is off-skin vinified for 15-18 days, but the Garganega has about 12 hours on-skin contact before a fermentation which lasts about 20-22 days. The Sauvignon finishes its fermentation in barriques, where it then remains for 3 months before being blended with the tank-fermented Garganega. Ageing 3 months: Garganega in 200 hl stainless steel tanks, Sauvignon Blanc in Allier oak barriques. After assemblage the wine is given 2 months bottle age. Ageing potential 3 years. Tasting notes Pale straw yellow with green tinged reflections. Intense and long lasting bouquet of green apples and peaches with nuances of orange blossom, roses and wistaria. Fresh acidity and good weight. Long aftertaste with marked hints of peach jam and cirus fruit. Smooth and well balanced. Analysis Alcohol 12.48% vol., sugars 3.7 g/l, dry extract 18.7 g/l, total acidity 5.80 g/l, pH 3.17.
