Description

Cantine Dei Martiena IGT 2019

Cantine Dei Martiena has a lively and intense straw colour. Complex aromas of fresh tropical pineapple and mango fruit, honeysuckle and elderflower florals. The dry and medium bodied palate has a nice structure held by a good minerality and pleasantly crisp acidity. Fresh peach and lemon citrus flavours mingle with a stoney mineral pillar and  touches of sweet pineapple over a floral background. Closes in a refreshing finish that has the tongue salivating for food.

Fun Fact: The word "Martiena" has a strong meaning for the Dei family. It's the name of the road leading to the estate, the name of the family villa, and the name of the vineyard in front of the winery where white grapes were once grown. This is why Cantine Dei's white wine has inherited its name.

A blend of indigenous and international grapes: 70% Malvasia, 20% Grechetto and 10% Trebbiano. The fruit comes from Cantine Dei's Martiena vineyard at the foot of the village of Montepulciano, Tuscany. The Martiena vineyard sits at 400m altitude and has bright yellow soils that are mainly a mix of sandstone.

The grapes undergo destemming-crushing, soft pressing, spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperature. The wine matures in stainless steel for 3 months and 6 months in the bottle.

 

Ageing potential: 3 years.
