Description

Vineyards: From grapes grown in Masottina’s own vineyards in the heart of the Piave region. Flat, of alluvial origin, predominantly clay, tending of lime. Cultivation is on spurred cordon and the number of vines per hectare is approximately 4000.

Winemaking: Classical white vinification. The must is left in contact with the grape skins for approximately 12 hours, after which it is lightly crushed. Fermentation occurs inside temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats where selected yeasts are added. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine is left in contact with the lees for a suitable period of time.

Tasting Note

Pale straw yellow with greenish shades. Fruity aromas and flavours -- ripe pears, golden delicious apples, peaches -- with floral notes and hints of lime and dried hay. Crisp and full-bodied, with a nice long finish.

About the Grape

Chardonnay: On of the "Top Seven Grapes" (that make up 75% of the World's wine), Chardonnay is widely grown in France, especially in the Champagne and Burgundy regions. In Italy, Chardonnay is planted in Lombardy – especially in the Franciacorta areas – in Trentino Alto Adige,Veneto, and Friuli. In the New World, Chardonnay is grown in California, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada -- pretty well anywhere you can plant grapes!

Chardonnay can withstand the liberal use of oak, although often unnecessarily so, and because of their acidity the grapes are particularly suited for making sparkling wines, particularly champagne.

Masottina

Masottina is a family-run company with vineyards on the sunny hills of Conegliano, based in Castello di Roganzuolo, only 60km from Venice. It produces a wide range of wines typical of the province of Treviso, by using grapes from its own vineyards and sourcing grapes grown in the best areas. Here, brothers Adriano, Valerio and Renzo Dal Bianco produce some of Italy’s best wines, including the Prosecco of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene DOC, and the classic red and white Colli di Conegliano DOC wines: Montesco and Rizzardo.

At every step in the growing and production process, Masottina pays respect to old traditions. Mature grapes are hand harvested and vinified with as little impact to the grapes as possible. The most prestigious red wines are matured in French oak barriques, to express their great love of wine and the extraordinary oenological traditions of the land.

The care and respect for grapes and wines continues at Masottina’s modern headquarters at Castello Roganzuolo, just outside Conegliano, where they employ the most advanced technologies in the production of wine, maturation of important red wines, and in bottling, before their wines are shipped to wine lovers around the world.

Every Masottina wine is made true to their philosophy: to invest passion, science and care in producing great wine that gives satisfying and joyous emotions to those who taste it.
