TASTING NOTES

The idea of creating a well-structured still white wine in a region known for its Barbera, Moscato and Brachetto wines, arose from the need to study the interactions between white Chardonnay vines, which change greatly according to the harvest and the product desired. The results were rather astonishing, when you consider that this Solum combines depth, crisp, well-defined aromas, suppleness, tanginess, and a well-balanced richness. The wine is pale straw yellow in colour, bright and lively, and its nose features distinct fresh white flower and zesty citrus aromas. As the wine breathes, ripe fruit (especially banana) and herby aromas develop. In the mouth, the wine is well-structured, with good alcohol, and a buttery feel typical of Chardonnay.

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Solum pairs well with a wide range of foods, from fish starters, to pasta and rice dishes with vegetables or white ragouts, traditional Italian fried foods, and white meats (veal, rabbit, etc.). Also great as a pre-dinner drink with savoury nibbles. Artfully enhances foods it is paired with, without detracting from subsequent dishes.

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.
