Description:

Vignavella, a wine with an unmistakable footprint born outside the limit of the appellations IGP or DOP. The result of a masterly fusion of two different expressions of a single selection of a special clone cultivated in two distinct areas of the estate.

CULTIVATION ENVIRONMENT

The Vella area is located nearby the winery and it shows a soil profile of medium texture with a significant presence of calcareous skeleton. Here the vines develop clusters with specific aromas of ripe tropical fruit rich of nuances, altogether with a pronounced verticality and a solid acidic backbone.

The Munti area is located about 2 km northwest from the winery. Here the soil profile is characterised by high clay component that enhances the terroir expression disclosing flavors of jam and most preminent tropical notes, evolving in candied fruit, offering more opulent perfumes and tastes. 

SENSORY PROFILE

A wine revealing unique but different notes at the same time. A blend that depending on the vintages is characterized by hints of yellow or white ripe peach, intermingled with pineapple and ripe Williams pears. An elegant altogether opulent wine that by aging in the bottle will express ripe fruit notes evolving into spicy hints.
