This Cantaloro will remind you of a summer breeze and on the nose it will reveal notes of peach, golden apple, melon and white flowers. On the palate it is intense and refreshing. Cantaloro is Avignonesi’s everyday wine and is available in white, rosé and red. The wines are fruit forward, easy drinking and accessible.
Grape variety: 32% Malvasia, 31% Trebbiano, 24% Sangiovese, 8% Chardonnay & 5% Grechetto.
Harvest: The grapes were picked between end of August and beginning of September.
Vinification: Soft pressing of the grapes followed by racking off of the must. The fermentation took place with the use of pied de cuve. Pied de cuve is the process by which a small batch of grapes is pre-harvested and used for preparing a vineyard-specific natural yeast, which becomes the “base stock” for fermentation when the main batch of grapes is harvested one week later. By using this self-made, natural yeast we enhance the tie between the vineyard and the wine, which will have a greater sense of place or terroir.
Ageing: The wine remained in stainless steel tanks until the end of December when it is bottled.
