“Lame del Sorbo” vineyards are located at 650 meters above the see level. The soil, the altitude, the temperature excursion and the wind breeze, are some factors that give us a hint VINICA might have just the ideal terroir for Sauvignon Blanc. The long fermentation due to the absence of temperature control in the cellar and any added yeast, together with the refinement period in stainless steel for 24 months, gives this wine complexity and profound taste. Acidity and sapidity are well balanced with a citrus note together with magnificent persistence.
