Details for Casa Belfi Bianco delle Venezie
Seductive is by far the best way to define this Casa Belfi Bianco delle Venezie wine. The golden orangey colour it has gained from three days working the must with grape skins seduces the eye, whereas the aromas of fruit tree blossom such as orange flowers and lime charm the nose.
The grapes are grown using biodynamic cultivation methods in pebble covered vineyards in San Polo di Piave, in the province of Treviso. Local yeasts are used and the resulting wine is very agile in the mouth, but also complex. A smooth, lively, and sprightly wine, yet delicate at the same time. Its partial fermentation in oak barrels leaves barely a trace of wood while the natural stabilization the cold winter brings about, together with the fact that it is unfiltered, leads to a slightly cloudy finish. A fresh citrus flavour of kumquat embellishes its mouth, which is surprisingly fatty despite its low alcohol content. It is brimming with energy, stimulating the sides of the tongue which react enthusiastically to the fine salt and delicate hints of lime. Chardonnay grapes provide the Casa Belfi Bianco delle Venezie with body and reminiscences of green apples while the Incrocio Manzoni variety gives it a more delicate and floral touch. An excellent wine to accompany an oily fish meal, or roast turkey or chicken in a white sauce or with lemon. Alternatively it also makes for an excellent aperitif wine. Once you try this wine, we're sure you'll agree with us in that it is of a quality rarely seen in this price range.
