Tenuta del Melo Gavi DOCG 2021

£14.99

Tenuta del Melo is located in the heart of Gavi’s hills. It is owned by the Rossi Cairo family that for years has promoted a project of sustainable and quality agriculture, with the progressive introduction of organic cultivation method.

The grapes are handpicked around mid September; they are then carefully selected, destemmed and delicately pressed. The must obtained, after its natural decantation, is put into stainless steel tanks. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 15/20 days approximately and happens at a controlled temperature of 18° C. The wine is left on its own lees for 3 months. It is then cold stabilised before being bottled in March. This process produces a fresh, very pleasant wine.

Colour is straw yellow, with greenish hints. The aroma offers a particularly fine mineral feeling and notes of honey and candied citrus. Mouthfeel is lively, balanced, with a fresh acidity, which increases its persistence and favours its drinkability. The finish is slightly almondish.
