2021 Cantine Borga Manzoni Bianco, Veneto, Italy (750ml)   

About the Icons
A Monthly Wine Club Selection
Cantine Borga was founded in 1940 in the Treviso area of the Veneto in northeastern Italy. The winery is 30km from Venice, located between the mountains and the sea. Borga is owned and managed by four cousins descended from the winery’s founders. Martino manages logistics, Caterina is the sales manager, Antonio is the production manager, and Riccardo manages the vineyards. Cantine Borga has 33 hectares of vineyards located at 6m above sea level on the plains of the Municipality of Chiarano. The soils are a mixture of sand, clay and silt. The area is rich and fertile, thanks to mineral deposits from the Piave river—and its tributaries—and the Livenza river, which crosses the estate surrounded by ancient woods.

100% Manzoni Bianco (a cross of Riesling and Pinot Bianco), the clusters were brought to the cellar immediately a—ter harvest and de-stemmed. Before pressing, The grapes underwent cryomaceration at 41°F for about 8 hours, to extract the primary aromas. The free-run must was inoculated with select yeasts and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for 10 days. The resulting wine was aged for 6 months in stainless steel before bottling. Straw yellow. Exotic aromatics of lychee, wax, and apricot with a charming floral note. The palate offers up tropical fruit, with more lychee, guava and passionfruit mingled with stone fruit. Light, bright and delicate in the mouth with a pleasingly so—t finish.
