White wine obtained from several parcel of land in Monleale (IT)

The Derthona Costa del Vento of Vigneti Massa is produced exclusively from white grapes that have always been cultivated in the Apennine and pre-Apennine hills of the "Marca Obertenga"; with phylloxera has risked extinction, now it is regaining the ancient spaces: from 4 hectares in 2000 to the current 150 hectares cultivated by over forty producers. Costa del Vento comes from a cold maceration for about 40 hours, subsequent fermentation for about 12 months in stainless steel tanks, and periodical "batonnage" of the lees for around 12 months. After about a year it is bottled in the classic format 0,75l, 1,5 lt magnum and in double magnum 3 lt.

Wine is an infinite team game. From our grandparents who have identified the grape varieties, the soil of exaltation of the same, to the nature that has recommended the best winemaking practices, to the modern winery, to the "sommellerie", to the wine shops, to the catering. We propose you to participate in this infinite and ancient game: using your specific and personal sensory attitudes, we ask you to describe the organoleptic characteristics of the wine of this bottle. Certain that the sense of smell and taste are inextricably linked to a person's points of reference, we prefer not to influence you, but to gather your evaluations: a small and pleasant effort can serve to better understand and communicate the characteristics of this "modern antique" white wine.
