Descrizione vino

The Toscana Bianco IGT "Poggio alle Gazze" of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia comes from the vinification in blend of grapes that for 61% are of the Sauvignon Blanc grape, for 23% of Viognier, for 14% of Vermentino, and for 3% Petit Manseng. The grapes were harvested by hand in boxes of 15 kg in the early morning and immediately cooled upon arrival in the cellar to keep intact all the aromatic potential. After a careful selection the whole bunches were subjected to a slow and soft pressing with maximum attention to protection against oxidation. After a static decantation of about 12 hours, the musts were put in new barriques for 23%, used for 27%, and in steel, cement and wood tanks 50%. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out at temperatures not higher than 22ºC. Malolactic fermentation was not carried out. The ripening lasted for 6 months on the lees with bâtonnage expired for the whole period. Before bottling was made the blend of the various batches and a light clarification. The wine was then subjected to a further aging in bottle of 12 months before being placed on the market.
