Maximo It’s a wine which is certainly unique on the regional oenological horizon, being the product of climatic conditions which them- selves can be called unique. It’s made in the highest part of the Villa Bianchi estate. Here, thanks to the very special climatic conditions caused by the alternation of high humidity and drier airflows, at fairly low temperatures, the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are attacked by Botrytis Cinerea in its most ‘noble’ form. This gives the wine incredibly complex and rare flavours and aroma.
Sauvignon Blanc 100%
The vineyard occupies about two hectares. It is trained on the Guyot system and has a planting density of 4273 vines per hectare. It faces north, on the crest of a hill, at 150 meters above sea level. The soil is moderately deep, chalky clay loam with some alluvial deposit gravel. The yield per hectare is extremely low and rarely reaches 3 tons.
The harvest is carried out by hand, with the grapes collected and transported in boxes. It is performed in at least three stages from mid-October to December. Selection of the grapes is a very delicate matter. The object is to pick only those bunches, or portions of bunches, which have reached the right degree of concentration (30-35° on the Babo sugar meter) as a result of the attack by some varieties of noble rot.
The grapes are pressed whole by means of a small, gentle press. After static decantation, the resulting must is fermented on its own yeasts at a temperature of 15°C for a month. Maximo then ages for about a year in small stainless steel containers before being bottled.
A wine for meditation, perfect with patisserie, especially of the dry variety, and tangy cheeses.
Serving temperature: 10-12°C
