Tasting Notes A delicate yellow in color with greenish highlights. The fruity and citric aromas fuse with notes of white peaches and litchees. On the palate, the wine, long and balanced, has character and structure-A vibrant vein of bracing acidity gives the wine an excellent freshness.
Vinification The vineyards utilized for the production of Conte della Vipera, are located at an altitude between 825 and 1150 feet (250-350 meters) above sea level on soils rich, in sediments of marine fossils with veins of clay, a terrain which gives a savory mineral character to the wines. The moment for picking the Sauvignon Blanc is determined on the basis of the rapport between the concentration of sugars and the maximum expression of the varietal aromas of the grapes. The bunches, hand picked, were immediately brought to the cellars and chilled on a refrigerated conveyor belt, which lowered the temperatures of the grapes, before they were pressed in order to maintain their varietal character. After a soft pressing, the must was left for several hours at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favour a natural static settling of impurities. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures held to a maximum of 61° Fahrenheit (16° centigrade). The wine then remained at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit to block the malolactic fermentation and conserve to the maximum extent the wine’s aromas and flavors. The Sauvignon Blanc was then blended with the Smillon to accentuate savor and add roundness and complexity.
