Description of Firriato Gaudensius Blanc de Noir

Firriato Gaudensius Blanc de Noir (Nerello Mascalese)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: soft straw yellow gold, fine and persistent.
  • Nose: reminiscent of the land of Sicily with its citrus, anise and a hint of minerals.
  • Mouth: persistent and complex and well structured and elegant. Recall the palate currant and almond flavors.

APPELLATION: Etna

VINEYARD: In Firriato hostel located 650 m.s.l.m. on the slopes of Etna, on a sandy volcanic soil and high drainage capacity, grow grapes Nerello, endemic in this area. The particular climate that makes them unique: the high temperature range, exposure to typical Mediterranean sun and a soil rich in minerals, give these varieties aromatic characteristics that are then enhanced with sparkling wine.

GRAPES: 100% Nerello Mascalese

AGEING: up to 4 years.

PREPARATION: Other than with other grapes Etna, Nerello requires pruning increases foliar screw portion, in order to protect the grapes from the sun. Through that naturally it slows down the maturation time, allowing the plant to concentrate more aromas and malic acid. The harvest takes place later, in mid-September. For vinification proceeds with the classic method, while aging continues for 32 months in the yeast in a cellar dug into the volcanic rock.

PAIRING: It is especially good with fish and white meats.

RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE SERVICE: 6-8 °C.

ALCOHOL: 12.5%

Det passade inte till vår meny. Första gången jag drack det med folket från Firriato.
Den hade en stark färg. Den hade aromer av jäst. Syrligheten hos Firriato kändes bra.

Este Nerello Mascalese é agradável à vista. Aromas fortes a levedura. Sabor a champanhe.

God farge. Minner om andre musserende, med aroma av gjær.Teksturen var bitter.
En god musserende vin til å avslutte måltidet.
Jeg åpnet den med min beste venn.
