TASTING NOTES

Color: Visually it expresses a light straw yellow color with slight greenish reflections.

Nose: The refined blend gives an expressive and dynamic aromatic profile of citrus, tropical fruit, vegetable notes typical of Sauvignon such as tomato leaf and the evergreen boxwood scent that you breathe while walking through the labyrinth of the Castello di Gabiano.

Taste: In the mouth it is dry, fresh and savory, at the same time you can perceive the heat expressed by the alcoholic component. The pleasant structure and persistence is supported by the small amount of Chardonnay which gives a sapid-bitter background.

NOTE FROM THE WINE-MAKER

Corte is a blend of Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes from the hills of Gabiano and Zoalengo. A    wine with intense and expressive aromas obtained with a particular and prolonged stay on the fine lees at low temperatures.

The yield is 80 quintals / ha obtained with short pruning and sorting during the harvest.

The fine label is a reference to the conviviality and elegance that this wine can transmit. Reproduces the page of an ancient manuscript from the private library of the Marchesi Cattaneo Adorno. The Court of Queen Dido is represented with the letter C in gold that the Scribe  De Chierico (15th century) uses as the incipit of a chapter  of the Aeneid.
