Banfi Serena Sauvignon Blanc
TT$174.95 – TT$1,797
Sauvignon Blanc with a Montalcino soul.
Serena Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect combination of the grape variety peculiarities and the characteristics of the territory in which it is born, Montalcino. Complex, a wine that reveals something new in every sip.
Grape Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
Production Technique: The selected grapes are harvested relatively early in the season, and cooled before pressing. Only the free-run juice is extracted from the press and, once it is decanted at low temperature and clarified, it is partially transferred to barriques where alcoholic fermentation takes place. The wine fermented in barrique, therefore, rests on the fine lees till the final blend with frequent battonage. Few months after the harvest bottling takes place. A short bottle aging concludes the cycle.
Description: Bright straw yellow color, typical Sauvignon notes on the nose, with tropical and citrus fruits. Acidity is well balanced by creaminess and complexity of its structure, accentuated by the partial fermentation in barrique in French oak.
Winemaker\’s Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc belongs to Castello Banfi single-varietals range. The grapes coming from the Nothern part of the Estate and the short contact with the fine lees in barriques allows for a wine of distinguished character with very intense and typical flavors.
Food Pairings: This white wine splendidly accompanies first courses based on vegetables, fresh cheese, fish in general. Good aging potentials.
