The Lafóa vineyard is located on a hill between the villages of Cornaiano and Colterenzio. The gravely-morainal composition of the soil and the perfect exposure to sun make it ideal for wines which possess a strong personality, yet remain elegant and well-balanced.
A Sauvignon strongly influenced by the cool, sunny landscape of rolling hills: a fruity, discreetly aromatic white with assertive acidity. Sleek, somewhat unrefined in its youth, from a few yeas’ bottle ageing it emerges elegant, compact, harmonious without compromising its fruit and freshness.
Grapes: Sauvignon blanc 100%
Soil and exposition: vineyards located in a sunny position. The soils are sandy, with gravely morainal deposits.
Yielding: 45 hl/ha
Vinification and ageing: the fully ripe grapes are crushed, briefly left to soak and pressed. The juice is left to decant naturally. Half of the total quality is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the other half in standard oak-casks and barriques. Only the part vinified in oak is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The final blend is made after the wine has aged for 8 months on its fine lees. Light filtering and bottling follows.
Colour: deep golden yellow
Bouquet: a clean, concentrated floral nose reminiscent of elder and acacia flower with hint of sage.
Taste: fresh and distinctive on palate with nicely rounded fruit, light oak spice and a crisp finish.
Total acidity: 6,0 g/l
Sugar-free dry extract: 20,1 g/l
