Lame del Sorbo
Sauvignon del Molise – 2020
Denominazione di Origine Controllata
“Lame del Sorbo” vineyards are located at 650 meters above the see level. The soil, the altitude, the temperature excursion and the wind breeze, are some factors that give us a hint VINICA might have just the ideal terroir for Sauvignon Blanc. The long fermentation due to the absence of temperature control in the cellar and any added yeast, together with the refinement period in stainless steel for 12 months, gives this wine complexity and profound taste. Acidity and sapidity are well balanced with a citrus note together with magnificent persistence.
White peach, mango and herbs. Delicate, pleasantly acidic, warm, with an elegant and refreshing finish.
|The name of the wine has origin from a secular Sorbo tree that domitates on our vineyards situated on the Ripalimosani hill, named “Lame”.
