Bianco di Pitigliano DOC Tenuta Montauto, Tasting notes:
Straw yellow in colour, limpid and brilliant, with light greenish reflections. A wine with a strong character, the nose is intense, broad and expresses fruity notes: white-fleshed fruit, citrus fruits and light mineral tones. On the palate it is firm and balanced, with a marked minerality and tending to savoury. It possesses great freshness and convincing drinkability.
Bianco di Pitigliano DOC Vinification:
Before being pressed, the grapes are placed overnight in cold storage in order to have a greater extraction of aromas and to avoid oxidation. Soft pressing is then carried out. The grapes are then decanted for 36-48 hours. Fermentation takes place in white, without skin contact, in stainless steel at a controlled temperature of 16°C. Vegan wine. All energy used during the production process comes from renewable sources.
At the Tenuta Montauto they are definitely lucky. There is nothing around them: only the silence as far as the eye can see of the thick Maremma woods, the wind, the hares and the hawks. There are no factories, no towns, no neighbours, no roads except the provincial road to Campigliola. An isolation that allows them to make uncompromising choices, in total freedom and with an absoluteness that comes from being released from the world. Besides isolation, they also have the good fortune of the providential sea air that always blows in from the west. The sea cannot be seen, but it can be felt in the wind that blows from Capalbio, which is only 10 km away as the crow flies. A wind that dries the vines and heals them from humidity.
