Description

Borgo Selene Bianco

Borgo Selene Bianco is a light, lemon-yellow in colour with a fresh, vivacious nose, clean, fresh perfumes of apples and ripe pears with a hint of acacia flower.

Borgo Selene Bianco is crisp and lively on the palate with a dry, lightly perfumed finish.

Borgo Selene Bianco : The Borgo Selene wines are made and blended by Alberto Antonini at the Curatolo family winery. Borgo Selene Bianco

The name Borgo Selene derives from the Greek goddess of the Moon, illustrating the influence the Greeks, who also brought the vine to Sicily, have had on the Mediterranean`s largest island.

The Borgo Selene wines are made and blended by Alberto Antonini at the Curatolo family winery, where Villa Tonino is also produced.

My father taught me to love the land and never to be discouraged but continue to make wine with passion and respect for its origin. Alberto Antonini (consultant winemaker).

Vineyards

Produced from selected grapes grown in the hilly areas in the province of Trapani in Western Sicily.

Vintage information

Winter was mild with frequent rain showers, which unusually, continued to define the spring and summer. Summertime temperatures were not excessively high, and this allowed for a longer maturation period. The moderate temperatures and a few summer showers ensured water reserves in the soil did not run short. This allowed for good development of the phenological phases resulting in stronger primary aromas.

Vinification

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel vats for 10 days at a temperature of 16 – 18°C. The wine then spent two months on its lees before being bottled.

Tasting Notes

Light, lemon-yellow in colour with a fresh, vivacious nose, fresh perfumes of apples and ripe pears with a hint of acacia flower. Crisp and lively on the palate with a fresh, dry finish.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.
