The grapes to produce Bianco d’Italia 2019 Sollazzo underwent brief skin contact prior to being pressed. The juice was clarified and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 18 to 19°C with selected yeasts. Bianco d’Italia 2019 Sollazzo was made in an unoaked style, in order to retain the fresh and fruity characteristics of this blend. The wine was then left to rest in tank until bottled.
The grapes are predominantly sourced from the rich and fertile region of Emilia Romagna, one of Italy’s most prolific wine regions, located between Tuscany to the south and Lombardy and Veneto to the north. The region’s geographical diversity plays a significant part in creating the different terroirs found in the region. The River Po links the rolling hills and the Apennine peaks to the west of the region, flowing through the low lying plains, to the vineyards influenced by the coastal breezes of the Adriatic Sea to the east. Each terroir imparts its own characteristic to the resulting blend.
Using a great blend of indigenous and classic varietals, Sollazzo is a range of excellent value-for-money wines which are produced for us in a state-of-the-art winery a couple of miles from the great old castled town in Umbria. Non-nonsense, typical, easy drinking, wonderful value for money, these wines are superb examples of modern winemaking at its very best. Highly recommended!
