Verduzzo Passito Soandre - Bosco del Merlo
Pairing: Dessert, Blue-veined cheeses
|Wine type||White Wine|
|In the vineyard||Soandre is a wine entirely conceived in the vineyard. A selection of the grapes are collected at an early stage of ripening and are left to dry, while the rest remain planted for a further period to undergo a process of over-ripeness. The phenomena of sugar and aromatic concentration leads to a complex olfactory and gustatory identity.|
|In the cellar||A selection of the grapes are immediately vinified at the time of the harvest; the rest are subjected to drying through natural ventilation. Both the musts are fermented in 225 litre casks. The wine then matures in wood for 10 months.|
|Sulphite content||175 - 200 mg/l (-30% / -20% legal limit)|
|PH||3,3 - 3,5|
Soandre is the name of a princess in a Cadore legend, who is transformed into a crystal clear stream in the name of love.
Verduzzo Passito Soandre is recognisable by an intense and bright golden colour and an embracing scent, seductive due to its hints of herbs and ripe tropical fruits. The taste is highly refined in its extremely balanced sweetness.
