Solìo di Valdiserre

Loazzolo D.O.C

THE INFLUENCE OF THE TERROIR

A fresh and well-balanced taste accompanied by an irrepressible aromatic elegance of citrus fruits, sage and yellow flowers, the product of sloping terrain and well-aged Moscato di Loazzolo vineyards.

 

GRAPE VARIETY

Moscato Bianco

 

VINIFICATION

Raisined grapes are destemmed and very softly pressed. After a brief fermentation period in steel vats, the wine is matured for 24 months, with at least 12 months in barriques.

 

TASTING NOTES

This raisined Moscato is a faithful representative of the Loazzolo D.O.C. denomination after which it is named, expressing the range of characteristics for which this ever-so-delicate and infinitely complex variety is known. Its intense straw colour, with noticeable golden highlights, hints at well-balanced sensations confirmed unanimously by the nose and mouth. The range of sensations reach outstanding levels, with distinct aromas of dried fruit, apricots preserved in alcohol, quince and withered yellow flowers. There is a beguiling, extremely elegant waxy note, born of the raisining and the wine’s glyceric structure. Exceptional balance between its sweetness and acidity is responsible for the wine’s cellaring ability, creating memorable sensations in the mouth. The after-aromas reiterate nuances distinguished in the nose, enhancing its ripe tropical fruit and dried fruit notes. This harmonious wine has a relatively low alcohol content, making it a versatile companion for a wide range of foods.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Light blue-vein cheeses and certain types of matured meats and salamis make interesting pairings. Although traditionally paired with biscuits and cakes, wines such as this, which create such an “emotional impact” really deserve to be meditated over on their own.

The Inimitable Vineyard
Vela wine Pinot nero of Loazzolo

11,000 vines per hectare: the pinot nero grown with this exceptional vine density was planted in 2007 (in France and Italy, vineyards are already considered intensive from 4,500 vines per hectare). Such density forces the vines to reduce their foliage and concentrate their essences into the grapes.
