Petrizza Vermentino di Gallura DOCG
Petrizza is the first white wine produced by Masone Mannu. This is a fresh and drinkable Vermentino di Gallura DOCG, whose grapes come from the vineyards nearby Monti, in the province of Sassari. Here the granitic sands typical of the soil infuse a strong minerality to Vermentino wines, which usually tends to be very expressive in this part of Sardinia. The harvest is carried out by hand, in small boxes and takes place in the first half of September. The grapes arrive quickly in the cellar, ready for sorting and soft pressing. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature and once the vinification is complete, Petrizza is left to mature in steel on the fine lees at a controlled temperature for about 3 months, in order to preserve all its freshness and fineness and increase the complexity and structure. Once the wine is ottled, it completes its refinement in glass another month before being realesed.
Petrizza has a lovely pale straw yellow colour, enlivened by greenish undertones. The nose opens up with elegant fruity and floral notes, with citrus hints that enrich the aromatic profile. In the mouth it is fresh and harmonious, revealing a perfect gustatory correspondence amplified by almond and aromatic herbs notes. More gentle and fluent than the "big brother" Costarenas, it remains in any case medium intense and persistent on the finish. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
