SAUVIGNON BLANC IGT “NANÌ” WINE FROM EMILIA-ROMAGNA
(Sauvignon Blanc IGT “Nanì” from San Martino in Strada, Forlì)
An international grapes variety, perfectly adapted to the climate of Emilia Romagna to give birth to “Nanì”.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
TASTING NOTES – What’s in the glass?
It retains a straw yellow colour, with golden reflections. First of all, its aromatic potential is incredible. Its fragrance bouquet is exceptionally complex and intense for such young white wine. The first scents are the typical one of the Sauvignon Blanc vine, such as tomato leaf, thyme and white blossoms. Indeed, there are also fruity notes in the bouquet, which especially remind you of citrusy hints, such as the lime peel. In the mouth, it is austere, as an outstanding white wine, with a medium-high acidity that makes you want to drink again. The body has an excellent texture, as 50% is refined in wooden barrels. Also, its flavour retains the same notes of the nose, but it adds even more strong vegetable notes such as bell pepper, jalapeño and grass. Good length on the palate and a touch of ultimate bitterness that makes Nani more interesting than ever.
FLAVOUR STYLE: Dry White
PARING – What do I pair with?
Nanì is perfect for crustaceans, especially sweeter ones, such as shrimp and scampi, as its bitter end will tend to enhance their flavour. First courses of crustaceans and molluscs, roasted or grilled white meats, as well as tubers and vegetables, accompany well with this excellent Sauvignon Blanc.
ABOUT TENUTA VILLA ROVERE
Tenuta Villa Rovere is located at the foot of Terra del Sole, a charming town founded by Cosimo de’ Medici in the 16th century. Terra del Sole, also known as Heliopolis – meaning Town of the Sun – rests on the ancient road running between Forlì and Florence underneath the fortress of Monte Poggiolo.
The vineyards, surrounded by the Montone River and the Mill Stream, are cultivated under unique microclimatic conditions over six hectares of poly-clonal and poly-varietal vines.
WINEMAKING NOTES – How is it made?
The harvest begins in September and farmers pick grapes by hand and put them in wooden bins. Once in the cellar, the selection of the grapes takes place in two periods, first immediately after picking and then after destemming operations, as a result to guarantee that only completely ripe berries go to the fermentation tanks. The maceration lasts approximately 36 hours while the fermentation takes place at the same time in stainless steel tanks. Then, the 50% of the wine remains in steel tanks, where it will mature from 5 to 6 months. The remaining part goes directly to French oak barrels where, in conclusion, it matures for 5 months. Consequently refinement, Nanì remains 2 months more in the bottle before the release.
