MARIA COSTANZA WHITE RISERVA DOP 2018 BIO - Az. Agr. Milazzo

Maria Costanza Bianco since the nineties has represented an oenological model of integration between an indigenous Sicilian variety, Inzolia, and the international Chardonnay. This union has given life to a wine that has written a fundamental page of oenology in Sicily.

From this path was born the Maria Costanza Bianco Riserva which, today, retraces the path of the Inzolia-Chardonnay partnership, flanked by 10% of Viognier and 5% of Sauvignon Blanc, thus creating an extraordinary example of varietal complementarity.

"The path that led to the birth of this wine begins with the introduction, in our experimental fields, in parallel with Chardonnay, of these two vines which, right from the start, showed a different and unprecedented expression in their varietal characteristics, respect to the places of origin ".

The in-depth knowledge of the territory, and of the indigenous and non-native varieties, is what has led the company to develop a new concept of wine territoriality, where soil, climate and people characterize a product in such a profound way, as to make it an expression of territory and not only of the vine.

Beautiful color, bright straw yellow. The nose is frank, rich and complex: the notes of Mediterranean aromatic vegetable and yellow flowers, dandelion, chamomile and wild rocket are evident. Tropical citrus and honey notes blend with slightly hinted tertiary hints of hydrocarbons and well integrated with vanilla. In the mouth it is warm, full and structured. Opulent and rightly savory for an uncommon persistence for a white wine.

WORK IN THE CELLAR:

This wine is the result of an oenological work in which the use of the barrique was intended as a tool to convey the typical expression of Sauvignon and Chardonnay towards notes of Mediterranean aromatic herbs to thus enhance the climatic influence of the cultivation environment. , while the discrete notes of hydrocarbon and flint are the result of the combination of plant and soil. The long maceration has instead contributed to enrich the product with tropical citrus notes perfectly balanced by a floral background, which leads to the definition of a new concept of aromatic longevity of the Maria Costanza Bianco Riserva, elevating it to a wine of extraordinary complexity and durability.
