Falanghina del Sannio “Assenza” 2017 – Antica Masseria Venditti
A bright straw yellow colour with greenish reflections, very intense and persistent fruitiness that reminds of the annurca, fine apple. The taste is fruity very intense and persistent, fine, dry and savoury.
The Falanghina Assenza Antica Masseria Venditti is cultivated at an altitude of 120/170 meters and the harvest takes place in the second half of September manually; during vinification, there is an immediate separation of the flower must from the pomace by soft pressing. The Falanghina Assenza Antica Masseria Venditti matures with cold decantation and stabilization of the wine by microfiltration and is after aged in bottle.
NOTES: the Enocultural project was founded in 2011 by Nicola Venditti (oenologist and patron of Antica Masseria Venditti). The aim of the project was to combine the biological production of two wines with the absence of sulphites, yeasts and added enzymes. In April 2014 finally, the new wines were officially presented. The name Assenza was chosen to highlight the production choices used. For the image, the heart of the stylized cluster/goblet was chosen, which overlooks the inscription in the new Venditti brand, put in negative and in transparency. The two colours, red and yellow ocher, are those used in the new Venditti logo. The absolute transparency is repeated in the back-label and in the capsule to see directly what has been produced and the natural cork stopper that protects the nectar of Bacchus. The certification is biological Reg. CEE 203/2012 with the inscription “without added sulphites”. This is to officially communicate to the consumer the production process adopted, free from other imaginative adjectives that today are very fashionable in the communication of wine, but just as empty of meanings and without any official certification.
The Antica Masseria Venditti has always cultivated its own vines, vinified its own grapes and refined its wines, with love, with passion. The name of the winery derives from the family residence of 1595. Probably built on the foundations of a convent of Benedictine monks dedicated to the production of foodstuffs to supply the abbeys of the territory. The greatest production was reserved for wine, a precious and indispensable good. The grapes are certified organic demonstrating a strong love and respect for the territory. Wines with personality, clear and frank. Surely to be tried by both newcomers and fans who probably already know this important reality.
