Vigneti Le Monde Pinot Bianco 2018 (Italy)
Loaded straw yellow with bright golden reflections, the Vigneti Le Monde Pinot Bianco 2018 is full bodied on the nose and also full of great character. With hints of mature exotic fruit, yellow peach and notes of sweet spices. The palate has a velvety warm and balanced body. This wine is a perfect accompaniment to lean appetisers and delicate fish courses.
When Alex Maccan purchased Vigneti Le Monde in 2008, his solitary aim was to breathe new life into it. When he purchased the Estate which is where the Vigneti le monde pinot blanc 2018 is made, the winery was in need of modern management driven by strong passion and based on a clear vision. Alex knew there was considerable financial investment needed to upgrade the facilities, machinery and revitalise the land. Going forward with his dream of owning a winery in Friuli and having recognised the Estate’s enormous potential, Alex, with the support of his team, set about renovating Vigneti Le Monde with an energy and enthusiasm.
The 100 hectares of vineyards, with some of the vines planted almost 40 years ago, feature a rich combination of clay and limestone, which differ from the more gravelly soils generally associated with the surrounding areas. For this reason, the soil at Vigneti Le Monde can be considered a genuine ‘Cru’. A cru is a vineyard or group of vineyards, recognised for its superior quality.
The vineyards feature rich soil able to produce wines that age well and are managed using the Guyot and cordon spur method of training, the perfect system for producing high quality wines. In the Northern Italian region of Friuli, strict wine production techniques are still rooted in the local culture, which is invaluable for anyone who wants to produce high quality wines whilst respecting and getting the best from nature. The winery uses state-of-the-art technology that respects man and nature to work together to produce wines that are seductively simple and elegant.
Vigneti Le Monde holds SQNPI certification (Sistema Qualità Nazionale Produzione Integrata) which translates as Integrated Crop Management National Quality System, a certification of sustainable farming.
Winemaker, Giovanni Ruzzene, says: “As a winemaker I don’t seek to overcomplicate the process. We may experiment along the way, but a great wine comes from the ground – not the lab! My aim is to produce easy drinking, interesting wines, surprising and perhaps a little bit quirky in their Friulian simplicity.”
