Fontodi Meriggio Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Meriggio means "Afternoon" in Italian and this Sauvignon Blanc comes from the south facing vineyards of Fontodi, drenched in afternoon sun. After picking, the grapes were carried to the Fontodi winery and carefully selected on sorting tables. After pressing using a pneumatic press, the grapes were fermented in a combination of stainless-steel vats (60%) and amphora (30%) with the remaining 10% fermented in untoasted tonneaux. No malolactic fermentation took place. The wine remained in stainless steel for six months before release to preserve the freshness and fruit purity of the wine. Silvery lemon yellow in colour, the Fontodi Meriggio Sauvignon Blanc (with 10% Trebbiano) has fresh and grassy perfumes on the nose leading to a lively, lifted palate with a mineral undertone. This wine shows the characteristic high quality of all the Fontodi wines and finishes on a long, elegant note.
