Ca’ Brione is an alpine white wine born in 1986. The soil's geological origins go back to the time when the African and European plates collided so forming the Alps. The great variety of rock thus caused lends both minerality and elegance to the wine.
Vinification: WINEMAKING METHOD The grapes in the cases undergo a brief drying process before being crushed. After static decanting the must is put to ferment in French oak barriques at a cellar temperature of 18-20°C. AGEING After fermenting, the wine rests on the lees for at least six months. A cuvée of all the batches is done the following April and bottling begins.
Nose: Intense floral aroma with notes of elder and robinia, hints of white-fleshed fruit, peach and ripe pear; spices recalling mediterranean herbs and a slight suggestion of sweetmeats.
Taste: A sense of fulness on the palate with great acidic balance and a finish of natural minerality
