Castello del terriccio CON VENTO
Produced from Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier grapes, Con Vento is fermented and aged in steel casks.
The name derives from a farm whose owners provided shelter for aging priests who were no longer able to work in their parishes, a sort of “convent.” Later the name took on the meaning of "hill of wind.”
The yellow detail on the label represents the refreshing breeze from the Mediterranean, bringing a touch of saltiness and giving a pleasant freshness on the palate. An elegant and refreshing wine from a top-class estate with a 1000-year history.
Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc
Separately by grape variety, in stainless steel tanks
The vinification techniques are very straightforward with the sole objective of exalting, at each stage of the winemaking process, the original character of the grapes and the unique nuance each wine receives from the soil. Lupicaia is vinified from only the best of the carefully selected grapes, and aged for 22 months in Tonneaux.
