Balente Mandrolisai Superiore
ALCOHOL CONTENT 11%
Selection of grapes harvested in the vineyards of Porruddu and Murvonis (Gergei).
PROCESSING AND AGING
20% of the grapes are harvested slightly in advance and fermented with maceration on the skins, partly in steel and partly in amphora, without adding selected yeasts, according to the BIOINTEGRAL method. This small mass is used as a “pied de cuve” to activate the spontaneous fermentation. The remaining part of the grapes, after destemming and soft pressing, is fermented in steel at 14 ° -16 ° C. It takes place for 70% in steel, "sur lie" and for 30% in Tonneaux, for 5-6 months . The wine is then assembled and clarified with only the use of Bentonite, followed by, before bottling, a light filtration with a minimal addition of sulphites.
Color: straw yellow.
Bouquet: Intense notes of pink grapefruit and lemon with details of spices and bread crust.
Taste: On the palate it is refreshing and quite round with a very pleasant finish.
Perfect as an aperitif, it goes well with fish-based dishes, even very aromatic ones, and medium-aged cheeses.
