2018 Nittardi BEN Maremma Vermentino Organic

Nittardi

Tuscany

Straw yellow colour with brilliant green nuances. Intensive
and persistent floral aromas combined with notes of peaches, lemon and exotic fruits. Great complexity on the palate, with citrus freshness and a prickly acidity, medium bodied and well balanced. A notable and
long-lasting finish with a slightly salty note.


Viticulture

BEN grows in our Maremma property called Mongibello delle Mandorlaie between Scansano and Magliano, only 11 km away from the sea at an altitude of 250m. The soil is mostly sand with granit stones and clay underneath.


Vinification

Soft pressing after a few hours of maceration in the pneumatic press. Cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by 4 month in stainless. No malolactic fermentation. Bottled in February 2018.
