LOGOS – MANZONI BIANCO IGT 2018 – 13.5% Vol
The term Logos, transliterated from classical Greek (λόγος), represents logical thought expressed through rational discourse. In philosophical thought, it has taken on different meanings such as rationality for Plato, logical reasoning for Aristotle, and intellect for Plotinus. To produce our Logos, we chose a great grape variety, the Incrocio Manzoni, which is a cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco, grown through regenerative agriculture, which improves soils and introduces ancient vineyard practices.
• Grapes: 100% Incrocio Manzoni. Autochthonous grape variety grown through regenerative agriculture, aimed at improving soils by increasing the organic matter present in them, pursuing a different idea of viticulture, with the reintroduction of ancient vineyard practices.
• Vinification: The must ferments for 15 days, staying in contact with about 20% of the skins. Then there is a year of aging in cement barrels and an additional year in the bottle.
• Tasting notes: On the nose it has scents of yellow flowers, dandelion, broom, fruit between pear and apricot, apple, notes of aromatic herbs, sage and thyme, spices including white pepper. In the mouth it enters fresh and quite salty, clean, elegant and silky with a note of softness, but that is not yet fully developed, fairly rounded; long persistence of flavors and retro-nasal aromas. By leaving it to oxygenate in the glass, a note of banana, light toasting, coffee and hazelnut comes out.
• Serving temperature: 10-12°C
