Denomination: Soave Superiore Classico DOCG
Grapes: 100% Garganega
Size: 75 cl
Produztion and aging: The grapes come from selected rows in the Costalta area, where during the harvest they are left to over-ripe in the vineyard for 20 days by cutting the branch. The hand-picked grapes in plastic boxes are destemmed and transformed into must by soft pressing. The fermentation of the must takes place at a controlled temperature between 16 and 18 degrees in steel tanks for about 12 months. The long permanence on the lees and the batonnage favor the extraction of glutathione present in the yeasts of the fine lees, one of the strongest antioxidants present in nature. The wine is then bottled, where it will remain for at least 12 months before being released on the market. In this way it is possible to limit the addition of sulphites to the final stages of processing, when the components of the wine are better integrated and less inclined to bind with sulfur dioxide.
Service temperature: 12° - 14° C
Bine Longhe is a wine with an intense straw yellow colour, a rich and brilliant color which derives from the late October harvest, after leaving the bunches to over-ripen in the vineyard for about 20 days. Characterized by a strong herbaceous and balsamic scent, fine and fresh, it combines the floral fragrance with live and juicy fruit. Full mineral taste, enveloping and persistent on the palate, with a slight bitter almond aftertaste.
Excellent in combination with fish, white meats and aged cheeses.
