Valcalepio bianco Vigneti della Polisena 2016 Tosca white wine
Variety: Chardonnay 60% and Pinot Grigio 40%
Medium straw yellow color.
The nose is fruity with yellow apple, hints of pineapple still far from ripening and mango. Followed by some orange citrus fruits and meadow flowers, those that grow free to grow as they like. What gives it intriguing complexity, are some traces of sea scents, so as to make us imagine a background minerality on the palate.
In the mouth has a clearly perceptible, yet at the same time sharp and rigid “Forma”. The minerality perceived among the aromas is pleasantly confirmed on the palate. Insisting on the scents of fruit even once swallowed, the finish is pleasantly persistent.
Without any doubt the best white Valcalepio of the 2016 harvest. Also the best Bergamo white wine of the same vintage.
Valcalepio bianco della Polisena 2016 Tosca white wine
Tosca company cultivates the vineyard and vinifies the grapes produced according to the dictates of Organic Agriculture. The soils are different, because here the substratum is made up of calcareous-clay rock from the Cretaceous period and from a particular type of Flysh lombardo, that of Pontida precisely. The flysh consists of sedimentary deposits formed in the marine environment.
