2020 Monte Solaio Boccasanta

$25.00

IGT Toscana Bianco
The 2020 Boccasanta is half vermentino and half ansonica. Vermentino is the classic white grape of Sardinia, and it’s increasingly being planted in Tuscany and elsewhere. It’s clear and crisp, with a bright, green apple character that really gets the mouth watering. Ansonica is a Sicilian grape with a rounder, softer personality and a pronounced nutty richness that acts as the perfect foil for the more angular vermentino. This wine is an excellent aperitif that will pair handsomely with all manner of salumi, cheese, and nuts.

Description

Monte Solaio’s Boccasanta has a pale yellow color and a taste that drifts gently to citrus. It is persistent and softly dry in the mouth. Each variety is harvested in multiple steps and the grapes are vinified separately. The harvest is strictly manual. Once transferred to the cellar, the grapes are de-stemmed and kept for 48 hours at 5° C in a stainless steel tank. Subsequently the grapes are gently pressed. This process yields “must” (juice, skins, stems), which is then poured into stainless steel tanks, and alcoholic fermentation then takes place at a temperature of 15° C. In February the wines are assembled for bottling.

Monte Solaio Winery

Monte SolaioMonte Solaio is a stellar property in the Suvereto region. The estate sits on 178 hectares in the Campiglia Marittima, the end of a mountainous spur that culminates in steep slopes facing the ocean just a few miles away across the Val di Cornia. The south- and west-facing slopes catch the sun’s heat, but the breezes off the ocean make the climate ideal for complex, expressive wines.

The soil here is the real treasure, with a heart of minerals and limestone providing an ideal environment for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Vermentino, Viogner and Ansonica.
