Judikes Vernaccia di Oristano Riserva 2008
GRAPE VARIETY Vernaccia
ALCOHOLIC CONTENT 17.5%
Alluvial soils, with a sandy-loam texture. The flow of the Tirso river for centuries has given rise to these naturally fertile lands, draining due to the presence of sand. The lands of the Tirso Valley, thus characterized, are called "Bennaxi".
The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in white with flor yeasts and alcoholic fermentation in concrete tanks, without controlling the temperature. After about six months, the wine obtained is transferred to oak and chestnut barrels, left empty, so that the 'film' of flor yeasts can form. The wine remains like this for over fifteen years, improving over time the structure, the alcohol content, the softness and complexity of its aromas and aromas.
Color: golden yellow with amber reflections.
Perfume: intense and elegant, liquorice and chestnut honey, quince, nutmeg and saffron stand out. Hints of nuts.
Taste: dry, soft and enveloping. Its alcohol content is moderated by freshness and flavor. The sip has a very long persistence.
Excellent as a meditation wine, to enhance moments of reflection and relaxation. Perfect at the table if accompanied with typical desserts such as amaretti or mostaccioli, but also with blue cheeses.
